10 February was the 10th day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

10 February 2007

Canadian Press - Inuit, Ottawa, sign deal in principle on Canada's first whale sanctuary (9 February 2007) A deal to create Canada's first sanctuary for bowhead whales has been signed between the federal government and Nunavut's land claim organization. 'These wildlife protected areas mean that the wildlife will be there forever, so we are happy about that,' James Eetoolook, vice-president of Nunavut Tunngavik, said.

The agreement in principle outlines funding and management for 12 other wildlife and bird sanctuaries in the eastern Arctic. The waters of Isabella Bay, on the northeast coast of Baffin Island, are a bowhead haven unparalleled in the world. The Inuit will be able to continue traditional use of all the protected lands.

The Ottawa Sun (9 February 2007) The Canadian Foundation for Innovation announced it was investing $25 million into two projects, one run by the University of Ottawa, the other by the University of Montreal, to enhance researchers' and students' access to scholarly materials online.

The money was awarded to the Canadian Research Knowledge Network, which is a consortium of 67 universities that provides access to research content with national and international publishers. There are currently more than 2,200 scholarly journals available through this online network. 'The real story is about Canada's future prosperity as a knowledge-intensive economy and society,' Dr Eliot Phillipson, CFI president and CEO, said.

CBC News - Canadian wild bird survey for 2006 finds no highly pathogenic avian flu viruses (9 February 2007) A Canadian study that tested more than 12,000 live and dead wild birds for avian influenza viruses turned up no cases of the highly pathogenic Asian strain of H5N1 viruses in 2006, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced.

In fact, initial analysis of viruses from tested birds showed no evidence of any highly pathogenic strains of avian influenza, H5 or otherwise, and none from the families of viruses found in wild birds that travel flyways through Europe and Asia, said Patrick Zimmer, director of policy and administration for the Canadian Co-operative Wildlife Health Centre that conducted the study for the federal, provincial and territorial governments.

The Globe and Mail - Employment growth raises questions about GDP (10 February 2007) Employers added 88,900 jobs last month, seven times more than forecasts. But it's not just a one month blip.

The Canadian economy has added jobs for five months in a row and most economists agree that jobs growth has been stunning. The part many are starting to question, though, is whether the country's lacklustre economic growth has been all that bad. 'If you ask me where the problem is, it's not the labour numbers. It's really the [gross domestic product] numbers and the way they are captured,' said Benjamin Tal, an economist at CIBC World Markets. Economists at Toronto-Dominion Bank point out that annualised growth estimates for gross domestic product are consistently about 0.4 percentage points too low.

In other words, economic growth rates are likely to be revised up by 0.4 percentage points on an annualised basis, said David Tulk, a TD economist.

The National Post - When retail turns green (10 February 2007) Wal-Mart has vowed it will eventually generate zero waste, be fully powered by renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, and be an industry leader in sustainable products.

Mario Pilozzi, head of Wal-Mart Canada, that serves one million customers a day, has seized upon the environmental initiatives with a particular fervour. 'This is the right thing for the business, for the environment, and for the customers,' Mr. Pilozzi said.

'The companies that have clear environmental policies are going to succeed like crazy,' said Nick Cowling, spokesman for Home Depot Canada. 'Not just because it's good business, but because it's the right thing to do.' Toronto retail consultant Wendy Evans says the so-called greening of retail, whereby retailers try to save energy and promote eco-friendly measures and products to consumers, will be this year's defining sector trend.

But there's more to it than just being good corporate citizens and courting public approval by taking on a top-of-mind issue, she said. 'There's been this recognition among retailers that there's huge cost savings as well.'

These are a few of the news reports reflecting Canada's rising invincibility from the growing Yogic Flying groups across Canada and the Invincible America Assembly at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City.
