July 3 was the 3rd day of the first month of the 2nd year of Canadian national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

3 July 2007

Bloomberg News - Canada stocks have biggest 2-day gain in a month on takeovers (3 July 2007) Canadian stocks notched their biggest-two day gain in more than a month. The TSX Composite Index gained 158.17, or 1.1 per cent, to 14,064.74 in Toronto. The benchmark index has risen 2.5 per cent in two days. From a Canadian Press report on this: Major dealmaking sent the Toronto stock market sharply higher, after charging ahead almost 200 points Friday. The Canadian dollar rose 0.44 of a cent from Friday's close to 94.3 cents US. From a Reuters Canada report on this: The Toronto Stock Exchange's main index leaped more than 150 points for a second straight session on Tuesday. All but one of the index's 10 main groups were up.

Reuters Canada reports on Canadian mining sector's biggest one-day gain in at least three years (3 July 2007) The Canadian mining sector enjoyed its biggest one-day gain in at least three years on Tuesday, thanks to a flurry of merger activity and lofty base metals prices, analysts said. By mid-afternoon, the TSX Mining sub-sector had jumped 38.91 points, or 4.8 per cent, to 858.05—not far off its 18 June record peak of 862.13.

CanWest News Service - Pride in the past ranks high in Canada: global survey (3 July 2007) A global survey of 40,000 people in 26 countries that explores how people feel about their nation's history shows Canadians rank extremely well in terms of their pride in this country's past. Nearly 92 per cent of the 1,155 Canadians polled for the study, analyzed by the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), said they were somewhat proud or very proud of Canada's history. Only three other countries polled—Venezuela (94.5 per cent), Ireland (92.8), the US (92.2)—registered higher levels. And no country had a lower rate —1.3 per cent—of respondents who said they were 'not proud at all' of their nation's past. ACS executive director Jack Jedwab believes Canadians' impressions of how the country is doing today has a significant influence on people's perception of the past. 'I think it says there's a fairly good feeling about the country and that's being projected on to its history.'

CanWest News Service - Universities receive funding boost (3 July 2007) Universities across the country are getting a big financial boost to help them attract the best and brightest minds. The Canada Foundation for Innovation announced it is investing C$26 million in research projects at 40 post-secondary institutions, that will support 36 projects and 192 researchers, aimed at strengthening research capacity in specific fields including environmental science, natural resources, and energy, health, and information technologies. 'This funding will allow bright young researchers to turn their ideas into innovations that provide solutions to environmental, health, and other important challenges, in addition to improving our economic competitiveness,' said Dr Eliot Phillipson, president and CEO of the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Sun Media - Markham zaps pesticides (2 July 2007) Markham is the latest Ontario municipality to tell pesticides to buzz off. The town's council unanimously passed a bylaw eliminating the non-essential use of chemical treatment for lawn care as of 1 January. The lack of opposition on council did not surprise Gideon Forman, the executive director of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment. 'The support for this type of measure is getting huge support as people become more aware of environmental concerns,' Forman said. Markham is the latest on a list of 23 communities to restrict the use of pesticides. Toronto, Newmarket, Oakville, and London are among Ontario communities where killing weeds and pests can't be done with a spray can, he said. 'By regulating the non-essential use of pesticides we will help protect our physical environment and the health of the town's residents,' Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti said.

The Edmonton Journal - Donated Alberta grasslands will help preserve prairie (3 July 2007) An anonymous benefactor has donated 412 hectares of rare native grasslands and shrublands to the Nature Conservancy of Canada. Only a third of the country's original grasslands remain, sheltering increasingly rare plants and animals. 'The grasslands is one of the most threatened ecosystems in North America,' said Larry Simpson, regional vice-president of the conservancy's Alberta region. The land was donated under the federal ecological gifts programme, that provides tax incentives for owners of certified ecologically sensitive land wishing to donate their land for conservation purposes. These tax benefits were strengthened recently with the elimination of the capital gains tax in the 2006 federal budget. In the lead-up to Canada Day, the conservancy also announced nine other 'Gifts to Canadians' across the country, totalling approximately 1,593 hectares.

The Toronto Star - Harper makes a practical shift to centre (3 July 2007) When Stephen Harper spoke about climate change just before meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G8 summit in June, few expected the Prime Minister to underplay the need for action on global warming. But it still came as a surprise when Harper, who once expressed doubts about the science of climate change, elevated greenhouse gas emissions to 'perhaps the biggest threat to confront the future of humanity today.' He also mused about a Canada that would rank as a 'green energy superpower'. In another shift, Harper has toned down his rhetoric on Canada's role in Afghanistan. Last month, he in effect acknowledged that troops would be withdrawn from southern Afghanistan in early 2009. This move contrasted with his earlier insistence that Canada could not just set an arbitrary end-date for the mission. The change is a response to public doubts about Afghanistan.

Canadian Press reports on 50th anniversary of Pugwash disarmament movement in Nova Scotia (3 July 2007) A half century ago, scientists from around the world convened in the Nova Scotia village of Pugwash to discuss the dangers posed by nuclear weapons. The movement that grew out of that has its roots in a manifesto penned in 1955 by Albert Einstein and British author Bertrand Russell, calling for scientists to examine the dangers of nuclear war and adopt a resolution urging governments to disarm. Pugwash-born philanthropist Cyrus Eaton offered to fund a conference in Nova Scotia. American scientist Paul Doty recalls the first meeting was significant not just for what was discussed but for the co-operation among the scientific community it represented and the hundreds of future meetings it spawned. The Pugwash Conference on Science and World Affairs will return to the community this weekend to mark its anniversary, bringing together scientists, diplomats, and former military personnel. Among them will be Senator Romeo Dallaire; former senator Douglas Roche; and Tadatoshi Akiba, the mayor of Hiroshima, Japan. Douglas Roche, a former Conservative MP and senator, was Canada ambassador for disarmament to the United Nations in the 1980s and now sits on the Pugwash Peace Exchange advisory council. Senator Dallaire, a retired general, passed a motion in the upper chamber earlier this year calling on Canada to take a 'global leadership role' on the issue.

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.
