22 March 2007

Reuters Canada - Sound policy adds to stable Canadian economy—BoC (22 March 2007) Bank of Canada Senior Deputy Governor Paul Jenkins said in a presentation today to the Economist Business Roundtable with the Government of Canada that sound fiscal policy and debt reduction have contributed to a stable domestic economy. Jenkins also said business regulations and standards need to be harmonized across Canada. 'I've met with a fair amount of co-operation on that from the provinces and the territories. We're moving toward a common securities regulator; for example, we're moving toward a broader agreement on labor mobility,' Finance Minister Jim Flaherty told reporters on Thursday.

The National Post reports (22 March 2007) Canada's business environment was rated third best in the world, after Denmark and Singapore, a report by the Economist Magazine's Intelligence Unit said. Bill Morris, managing director for Accenture in Canada, which also sponsored the report, said the latest budget will help make Canada more business friendly because of its commitment to cut corporate red tape, its support for a single securities regulator, and measures that will improve the labour market. Canadian firms in most sectors, including leading-edge knowledge industries like information technology, are productive and globally competitive, he said, echoing a view expressed by Bill Gates in a recent interview.

Canadian Press - Economy caps steady growth in fourth quarter with year's strongest month (22 March 2007) Statistics Canada says business investment remained the fastest growing sector. Firms intend to boost business investment by nearly five per cent in 2007, with the buoyant outlook evident in almost all industries. The largest increases are from utilities, which are planning to boost capacity, especially wind-generated power. Transportation also plans double-digit growth, including urban transit. Manufacturers intend to invest more this year, reversing a drop in 2006.

The Edmonton Journal - Alberta eyes big earning gains (22 March 2007) Alberta will create a corporation to oversee $70 billion worth of financial assets that will be the fifth-largest pool of managed capital in Canada, after the Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec ($143.5 billion), the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board ($111 billion), the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan ($96.1 billion), and the BC Investment Management Corp. ($76.3 billion). The Alberta Investment Management Corp. will manage Alberta's public endowment and pension funds, including the $13.5-billion Local Authorities Pension Plan, the province's largest public pension fund. The government believes this could boost net investment returns of the funds by up to $500 million annually.

CBC News - $8B Sask. budget rolls out subsidies for seniors, grads (22 March 2007) The Saskatchewan government announced in its budget that the province is giving a new tax break to young people working in Saskatchewan after graduating from a post-secondary institution—a $10,000-a-year income tax deduction. When combined with existing deductions, the change means post-secondary graduates won't have to pay provincial income tax on the first $20,000 earned. The exemption lasts for five years from graduation. For those still in school, there was also good news: A freeze on post-secondary tuition that's been in place since 2004 will remain for at least another year. There's also a prescription subsidy for senior citizens, who will now pay no more than $15 per prescription.

CBC News - Canada must be a clean energy superpower: PM (22 March 2007) Prime Minister Harper told an environmental conference, that his government will soon unveil national mandatory emission targets for greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. 'Canada must not be merely an energy superpower, but a clean energy superpower.' If clean-air technologies currently being tested prove successful, Canada will export them to the rest of the world and 'make a huge difference in reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions'.

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.
