Good news report from Canada, 14 April 2007
14 April was the 14th day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:
14 April 2007
Reuters Canada - Canada's '07 GDP may expand more than 2.3 pct: Flaherty (14 April 2007) Canada's economy may expand more than the 2.3 per cent forecast in last month's budget, Finance Minister Flaherty said on Saturday. 'The view is that economic growth in Canada is accelerating (as the year progresses),' he said.
From another Reuters Canada report on this: The Canadian economy will accelerate this year driven by strength in consumer spending, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said. The economy would benefit from 'very strong' jobs growth, solid personal income gains, and continued low interest rates, Flaherty said. 'Final domestic demand remains strong and continues to be the main driver of growth.'
Bloomberg News - Canadian dollar strengthens for a fourth week on economy, commodity prices (14 April 2007) Canada's dollar rose for a fourth straight week, its longest rally in more than a year. The currency reached a four-month high this week as firms including Goldman, Sachs & Co. predicted further gains, following a surge in the prices of Canada's main commodity exports, and after a report showed job growth is accelerating. The Canadian dollar rose 1.2 per cent this week to 87.89 US cents, for its longest winning streak since February 2006. The Canadian currency gained 3.4 per cent over the past month on evidence of economic strength.
Reuters Canada - Canada sees support for free trade in securities (13 April 2007) The G-7 nations support Canada's initiative for free trade in securities and the proposal has gained momentum, Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said. Canada has been pushing a proposal to create mutual recognition of national regulators, and Flaherty said that US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson was 'enthusiastically supportive' of the plan in talks on Friday. 'We made some concrete plans today to move forward with this issue as G7 finance ministers.'
The National Post - Our healthy mortgage market (14 April 2007) In Canada, the subprime market makes up a relatively small part of the overall mortgage market. The market has not been using the option adjustable rate mortgages for subprime borrowers, so the default rate is low. The arrears rate for all outstanding mortgages remains at or near record lows of 0.25% as of December 2006. Canadians remain conservative when selecting their mortgages. Two-thirds of mortgages are for fixed period and a large majority of first-time homebuyers have insurance on their mortgages. Both the traditional and subprime mortgage markets remain strong and are in a healthy state.
The National Post - Resale activity hopping across Toronto, says real estate board (14 April 2007) The spring market got off to a healthy start because of strong resale housing activity in March, the Toronto Real Estate Board says. A total of 8,518 transactions took place in the month, nearly on par with the 8,707 sales last March.
The Toronto Star - Checking out the chemicals in your blood (14 April 2007) The federal government will conduct an extensive programme to test the blood of 5,000 Canadians for chemicals to check the extent to which Canadians have been affected by these man-made toxins that invade their daily lives. The porgramme is geared toward developing programs and policies to prevent diseases and promote better health habits. The survey is coupled with a decision by the government to launch a Chemicals Management Plan aimed at regulating some 23,000 chemicals produced or imported before 1988, when the government began assessing their risks. 'We have reversed the onus on 4,000 chemicals that are deemed to be at-risk chemicals. We have said to industry that you have to prove ... that they are safe to be included in your product, and if you can't prove that, then you have to start replacing it with something that is safe,' Health Minister Tony Clement said.
The National Post - Canada's largest paint manufacturer goes green—will this soon be the law? (14 April 2007) Quebec-based Sico Paints' design line is now VOC (volatile organic compound) emission-free. That means fewer pollutants for Mother Earth and better air quality at home. According to Dominique Pepin, a brand manager at Sico, next year legislation is expected to be introduced that will require paint companies to lower the VOC levels in their products.
Canadian Press - Canada and U.S. agree to new talks on reducing cross-border air pollution (13 April 2007) Canada and the US will start new negotiations to reduce cross-border air pollution, Environment Minister John Baird said. The focus will be on so-called particulate matter, such as airborne particles from smokestacks, that are linked to respiratory problems and heart disease. 'There was a degree of enthusiasm that I didn't anticipate,' said Baird, who announced the talks after meeting with Stephen Johnson, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
From a CBC News report on this: Baird said Canada is ready to pursue air pollution reductions aggressively. 'I'm pleased to see [the EPA] is quite keen to move aggressively as well.' Baird said regardless of the negotiations, the federal government will go ahead with plans to regulate the amount of emissions released by Canadian industry.
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.
