27 March was the 27th day of the ninth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

27 March 2007

The Toronto Star - `Warm, fuzzy' climate goals backed (27 March 2007) A plan to radically slash greenhouse gas emissions in the city of Toronto has been endorsed unanimously by city council's executive committee. The plan will be now to go to public consultation before final decisions are made by city council this summer. 'This is about ensuring our city is livable for the next many generations,' Mayor David Miller said.

The National Post - Canadian rebirth for wind power (27 March 2007) A high-technology battery could make wind turbines nearly as reliable as coal-fired electric plants. Developed by Vancouver-based VRB Power Systems, the battery took a major step toward commercial success yesterday after the Irish government released a study showing that a small island wind farm could see a 17.5% rate of return by using the VRB batteries, a huge growth over the 10% returns at most Irish installations. The high-efficiency batteries store excess electricity when it's not needed, then release it back to the grid when the winds calm down. Batteries could allow the grid to support far higher concentrations of alternative energy by making it less intermittent.

The Globe and Mail - Turning to the tide for green energy (27 March 2007) Last summer, a Vancouver-based company installed a tidal turbine generator near Race Rocks Island off BC. The prototype will be used in the planning of a larger commercial generator. If 20 large units can be placed near Race Rocks, they could produce about 75 million kilowatt hours of energy, enough to supply 7,500 average BC homes. In Discovery Passage, the tides are also fast, and there is underwater space for up to 200 generators. The large tidal farm could produce 850 million kilowatt hours of energy, enough for 85,000 average homes. BC's Energy Plan states that new electricity generation projects must have zero net greenhouse emissions, which tidal power can achieve.

The Globe and Mail - Commodities roar back (27 March 2007) The Bank of Nova Scotia commodity price index rose last month, to within less than a percentage point of its December record high. The index, which tracks 32 commodities, climbed back to 178.1 from 170.8 in the first month of 2007, having ended 2006 at a high of 179.2. Scotiabank's agriculture sub-index also climbed in February.

Canadian Press - Number of employment insurance recipients edges down in January (27 March 2007) The number of Canadians receiving regular Employment Insurance benefits in January edged down 0.2 per cent from December. The January figure was 4.4 per cent lower than for the same month a year earlier. All provinces and territories showed declines.

The National Post - Profit picture looks rosy (27 March 2007) Since 1960 a decline in the profit share of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has always preceded a US recession, according to United Bank of Switzerland (UBS) strategist George Vasic. Since profit ratios in Canada and the United States have not declined, this means no recession is in sight, he said in a research note. In his view, this suggests a favourable situation for equity markets, since profits shape corporate budgets, which in turn lead to employment trends and capital spending plans that are not easily altered. 'The strength in corporate profits in the current cycle would appear to offer even more buffer than in the past, as firms have been quite conservative in its deployment.'

The Globe and Mail - Flaherty optimistic for chances of single regulator (26 March 2007) Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty says he believes now there is 'substantial support' among provinces to move toward a common Canadian securities regulator. 'I am quite optimistic about it actually. I think there's a strong sense among the Finance Ministers . . . about this being an important step to strengthen the Canadian economic union and to grow the economy.'

The Victoria Times Colonist - Northern islands to be protected (26 March 2007) The Scott Islands off the northern tip of Vancouver Island comprise one of three protected marine areas named in the recent federal budget. The Scott Islands consist of five steep-cliffed islands on which more than two million seabirds—almost half the total breeding population of seabirds in BC‐ nest annually. Eleven of the twelve species that nest on the islands are designated as vulnerable. One of the islands, Triangle Island, has BC's only ground-nesting bald eagles and several Peregrine falcon eyries. It also has the largest Steller sea lion rookery in BC—the second largest in the world. Marine mammals in the area include humpbacks, blue whales, orcas and sea otters.

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.
