26th February was the 26th day of the eighth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

26 February 2007

Canadian Press - Scottish Gaelic speaker coming to Cape Breton to teach dying language (25 February 2007) Joy Dunlop will be heading from Scotland to the western Cape Breton community of Mabou in early March for a five-month position with Feis Mhabu—a local group dedicated to promoting Gaelic—to stage language, dancing, and singing classes for children and adults.

A century ago, there were an estimated 100,000 Gaelic speakers in Nova Scotia. That number has fallen to fewer than 500 today. It's important to ensure it doesn't disappear forever, says Dunlop. 'It's so intertwined with the history. A lot of places in Cape Breton were all Gaelic, and you can definitely still see the remnants of what that was like.'

The Nova Scotia government recently set up an Office of Gaelic Affairs, which has more plans in the works, and the province's Education Department is working on a Celtic curriculum to teach students about the region's native language and culture.

Sun Media - Calgary electricity blowin' in the wind (25 February 2007) Since 1 January the 37 wind-power turbines have been supplying city operations—from traffic lights to office lighting with 75 per cent of their electricity. The 20-year deal with the city-owned utility Enmax is the largest of its kind on the continent and cuts the local government's greenhouse emissions by 40 per cent—eliminating 262,000 tonnes of the gases annually. City leaders want to bump that 75 per cent up to 90 per cent green electricity by 2012. The city wants to reduce total emissions from city operations to 50 per cent below 1990 levels by 2012, a goal that's well within reach, say the plan's proponents. The goal is to reduce overall community emissions 20 per cent below 2005 levels by 2020 and 50 per cent by 2050.

Sun Media - Wind-wind plan for Enmax, Calgarians (25 February 2007) Calgarians could be generating their own electricity with rooftop wind turbines by year's end, and residents by next year could also be producing their own heat through natural gas and hot water-fired co-generating units the size of a dishwasher, said Enmax spokesman Peter Hunt.

Domestic electricity generation would also lessen transmission expenses while reducing the loss of power from many kilometres of lines, and on windier days, some homes would generate a surplus of electricity that would be funnelled back onto the energy grid saving those households money, said Hunt. Wind turbine use on strip malls and condo complexes is also being seriously pursued.

The Globe and Mail - Coalition seeks pesticide ban (26 February 2007) Ontario is being lobbied by a number of well-known medical, public health, and environmental organizations to institute a province-wide ban on the aesthetic use of pesticides. Ontario would be the second province, after Quebec, to take this action and it would mean that more than half of the country's residents live in areas where the use of pesticides for cosmetic reasons has been made illegal, based on health concerns.

Dozens of cities, including Toronto and Halifax, and more than 120 communities across the country also have bans. According to a poll, 71 per cent of Ontario residents support a ban.

Canadian Press - Ontario NDP wants toxin warnings on products (25 February 2007)

Toxic chemicals are in many everyday products, said NDP* environment critic Peter Tabuns, who is pushing for a new law that would compel manufacturers to disclose dangerous ingredients in their products, citing California, where manufacturers opted to find alternatives rather than list carcinogens on their labels. 'This issue really has arrived, and the political momentum among the public is there,' Environmental Defence policy director Aaron Freeman said. *The New Democratic Party is a social democratic political party in Canada.

The Ottawa Sun - College builds on green design (25 February 2007) Algonquin College is launching a new programme—green architecture—for those who have already graduated from an architectural programme, to give them more skills in green architecture elements of design. The graduate certificate will be the only one of its kind in the country and was developed in response to concerns with climate change. Students will learn design techniques that go beyond the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards that serve as a benchmark for green buildings.

Bloomberg News - Antarctic, Arctic Get $1.7 Billion Influx as Polar Year Starts (26 February 2007) Scientists around the world are undertaking a coordinated project to study ecologies, indigenous peoples, and climate change at the two ends of the planet.

One of the most ambitious coordinated scientific studies ever carried out, it includes 228 different projects involving 50,000 scientists, students and support staff in more than 60 countries. The 228 studies include 170 scientific projects and 57 educational plans to bring scientific information to schools and the public.

Projects in Canada and Norway will examine the impact oil and gas industries have on northern indigenous people, including the transportation links and infrastructure that are added, and the disruption to wildlife.

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.
