The Scale of Justice:The fair and proper administration of laws conforming to the natural law that all persons, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, possessions, race, religion, etc., are to be treated equally and without prejudice. The personification of justice balancing the scales dates to the Goddess Maat, of ancient Egypt. The Hellenic deities Themis and Dike were later goddesses of justice. Themis was the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law.
There's been a lot of talk about Fiscal Balance, but really, what is it all about? The fiscal balance is the difference between government revenues and expenditures. A fiscal deficit occurs when, in a given fiscal year, a government spends more than it receives in revenues. On the other hand, a government will run a surplus when revenues exceed expenditures.
Consecutive large fiscal deficits in Canada are strongly detrimental to the sustainability and stability of public finances as they are financed by additional debt. When the level of outstanding debt is high, the cost of servicing that debt, both in absolute interest payments and in higher interest rates, pushes a country further into deficit, thereby hindering fiscal sustainability, economic stability and growth. Governments can reduce future debt servicing costs by improving the primary balance, which equals the fiscal balance net of interest payments.
The Orca: Spiritual animal is powerful and intelligent, and it can survive even the harshest climates. The meaning of the orca also highlights the importance of family. The orca spirit animal reminds you that family should be your constant, and you should work hard to have something that you can call your family when you have none.
The orca symbolism also speaks about security and stability when it comes to love and relationships. Because orcas are known to mate for life, you are also being encouraged to nurture your relationships and cultivate love, peace, and happiness.
The Celestial Spheres, or celestial orbs, were the fundamental entities of the cosmological models developed by Plato, Eudoxus, Aristotle, Ptolemy, Copernicus, and others. In these celestial models, the apparent motions of the fixed stars and planets are accounted for by treating them as embedded in rotating spheres made of an aetherial, transparent fifth element (quintessence), like jewels set in orbs.
Some late medieval figures noted that the celestial spheres' physical order was inverse to their order on the spiritual plane, where God was at the center and the Earth at the periphery. Near the beginning of the fourteenth century Dante, in the Paradiso of his Divine Comedy, described God as a light at the center of the cosmos.

In his Metaphysics, Aristotle adopted a celestial physics of geo-concentric rotating nested spheres first devised and developed by the astronomers Eudoxus and Callippus. In the fully developed Aristotelian celestial physics, the spherical Earth is at the center of the universe and the planets are attached to anywhere from 47 to 55 concentric spheres that rotate around the Earth. Aristotle considers that these spheres are made of an unchanging fifth element, the aether, and each of these concentric spheres is moved by a god - an unchanging divine mover. Aristotle says that to determine the exact number of spheres and the number of divine movers, one should consult the astronomers.
The emergence of a Popular Nationalism Political Movement is taking place in Canada through the National Coalition Party of Canada (NCPC). There are two main perspectives on the origins and basis of nationalism. One is the primordial perspective that describes nationalism as a reflection of the ancient belief perceived by evolutionary tendency of humans and citizens to organize into distinct groupings. The other is the modernist perspective that describes nationalism as a recent political phenomenon that requires the structural conditions of modern society and sustainable government reform through the democratic political process.
