18 April was the 18th day of the tenth month of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

18 April 2007

Bloomberg News - Canadian stocks rise, led by Manulife, Banks (18 April 2007) The TSX Composite Index rose 54.01, or 0.4 per cent, to 13,711.96, a new record. The TSX Financials Index rose 1 per cent to a 52-week high. The TSX Industrials index rose 1.2 per cent, also to a 52-week high.

Bloomberg News - Canada dollar trades at 5-month high as investors increase asset purchases (18 April 2007) The Canadian dollar climbed to 88.67 US cents at 4.08 p.m. in Toronto. Earlier, it traded at 88.77 cents, the highest since Nov. 7 after a report showed international investors added Canadian assets in February. Investment inflows have helped the Canadian dollar gain more than 2 per cent this month against the US dollar. Foreigners bought more Canadian securities than they sold for the first time in three months in February, as they invested in Canadian stocks. International investors bought a net C$5.1 billion of Canadian equities in February, a 10-month high.

The National Post - Most adult workers say ethical behaviour is tied to happiness at work (18 April 2007) A new survey on ethics and the workplace found there is a strong relationship between work-life balance and positive ethical behaviours at work. The survey found 91% of employed adults agree workers are more likely to behave ethically when they have good work-life balance. Sixty per cent said job dissatisfaction is a leading reason why people make unethical decisions at work, and 55% ranked a flexible work schedule as a major factor in job satisfaction.

The Toronto Star - Ontario to ban 'old' light bulbs (18 April 2007) Ontario said it plans to ban incandescent light bulbs and what it calls other inefficient lighting technologies by 2012 in an effort to reduce electricity consumption and lower the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. 'It's the equivalent of taking 250,000 cars off the road,' said Environment Minister Laurel Broten. The move makes Ontario the first province in Canada—and the first jurisdiction in North America—to commit to a ban on inefficient lighting.

Canadian Press - New protected areas, parks being created (18 April 2007) The B.C. government will establish three new provincial parks, expand 16 others, and create 41 new protected areas under legislation introduced yesterday. The 41 new conservancies protect about 165,030 hectares, 161,618 hectares of land and 3,412 hectares of marine foreshore. Many of them are managed by natives.

CBC News - 'Conscience of community' spurs fair trade town (17 April 2007) Wolfville, Nova Scotia, on Tuesday will become Canada's first fair trade town. 'It's the conscience of the community speaking when it says that we will in fact support the notion or the concept of fair trade,' Mayor Stead said. Fair trade products offer farmers in developing countries higher prices for their goods than they would typically receive, and money is directed to social and environmental development and fair labour wages. Stead said the town has committed to using fair trade coffees, teas, sugars, and other products in restaurants and at Acadia University, located in Wolfville. Support for fair trade products has been growing steadily in Canada.

From a Canadian Press report on this: The designation means the picturesque community has committed to the principles of fair trade and to providing certified fair trade products in its shops. Mayor Bob Stead says the municipality also wants to help local farmers by committing to a programme that encourages people to buy local products.

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.
