BoC, gloomier economic outlook


In general, the economic forecast is gloomier than previously predicted. Canada is being pulled down by a U.S. recovery that will be weaker than expected, a global turnaround that is “entering a new phase” fraught with uncertainty, and a retrenchment by Canadian consumers, the central bank said in a statement on the decision.
The expected growth for 2010 has been cut to 3 per cent from 3.5 per cent, while 2011 growth was cut to 2.3 per cent from 2.9 per cent, and 2012 growth raised to 2.6 per cent from 2.2 per cent.
