6 March 2007

CBC News - Bank of Canada says economy 'in line', leaves key interest rate at 4.25 per cent (6 March 2007) The Bank of Canada left its key interest rate at 4.25 per cent, saying there's no need to tinker with the economy. Inflation is running just about on target, unemployment is flirting with 30-year lows, and economic growth picked up in December. 'The Canadian economy is expected to continue to operate near its production capacity through 2007 and 2008,' the bank said. The central bank said it judges the risks to its inflation predictions are roughly balanced.

From a Bloomberg News report on this: Central bankers today repeated their January forecast that economic growth would accelerate to a 2.8 per cent pace in the second half of this year, led by consumer spending.

Canadian Press - Value of building permits surges to record high in January (6 March 2007) The value of building permits surged to their highest level ever in January, passing the $6-billion mark for the third time in four months on the strength of huge gains in the value of residential and non-residential permits. Statistics Canada predicts a busy spring on construction sites as builders took out a record $6.3 billion in permits in January, 11.3 per cent more than in December and well above expectations for a 2-per-cent rise. The value of non-residential permits increased 19.3 per cent to a record $2.6 billion. The value of residential building permits rose 6.3 per cent to $3.7 billion, the third-highest monthly level on record with increases in both single-and multi-family components.

Statistics Canada - Building permits (6 March 2007) Municipalities set a record for the value of building permits for single-family units for a second consecutive month. The demand for new single-family units has been on an upward trend since the middle of 2006. The housing sector continued to be positively affected by the very dynamic economy in Western Canada, as well as advantageous mortgage rates, and the continued strength in full-time employment and in personal disposable income.

Permits in the institutional sector rebounded a spectacular 69.3 per cent. In the industrial sector, the value of permits surged 45.9 per cent. The value of commercial building permits were 12.0 per cent higher than the average monthly level in 2006. Economic factors that contributed to non-residential sector strength include growth in consumer spending, declining vacancy rates for industrial and commercial buildings, and record high corporate operating profits in 2006.

Canadian Press - Ottawa announces $1 billion in funding for Toronto-area transit (6 March 2007) Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced more than $1.5 billion in federal funding to help ease gridlock, improve air quality and funnel clean power in Ontario. Harper said $586 million of Eco-Trust funds will be earmarked to help pay for a new east-west transmission grid that would allow Ontario to import cleaner electricity from Manitoba. 'This will assist the Ontario government as it moves forward on phasing out the province's remaining coal-fired generating stations, a goal, which once fully realized, will result in the reductions of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, ' Harper said.

Canadian Press - Top CEOs announce task force on climate change (5 March 2007) Thomas d'Aquino, president of the Canadian Council of Chief Executives, said major corporations want to make Canada a global leader in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting clean technologies, and fostering sustainable economic development. 'As the heads of major corporations across all sectors of our economy, we are committed to doing our part in shaping an effective strategy for national success and global leadership.'

From a National Post report on this: Two dozen of the country's most senior business leaders have signed on to study how best Canada can combat climate change. 'This is not a case of getting together and responding to a policy. What this is more of is a creative exercise where we will be looking at every creative option available,' d'Aquino said.

The Regina StarPhoenix - Gov't pledges green strategy in new session (6 March 2007) The Saskatchewan government will go green in the legislative session that begins 7 March and in the 22 March provincial budget, with Premier Lorne Calvert promising an environmental strategy that includes a plan to reduce provincial greenhouse gas emissions. 'Over the course of the session, we will unveil both a green strategy, the overarching strategy, and a very specific strategy around climate change,' he told reporters on 5 March.

CBC News - Canada takes No. 1 spot in global image poll (6 March 2007) Canada came out best in a globe-spanning survey of attitudes toward 12 major nations. About 1,000 people were polled in each of 27 different countries from November to mid-January. The survey asked more than 28,000 people to rate 12 countries—Britain, Canada, China, France, India, Iran, Israel, Japan, North Korea, Russia, the United States, and Venezuela—as having a positive or negative influence on the world. Canada had the most positive rating in the survey, with 54 per cent viewing it positively.

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, USA.
