  1. A little more colour to the BOC rate cut.

    “Canada’s statistics agency cut its estimate of how many jobs were created last year, bolstering the central bank’s view of a labor market that’s showing underlying signs of weakness.
    Employers added a net 121,300 positions to payrolls in 2014, Statistics Canada said today from Ottawa. That’s down from the 185,700 reported earlier this month, and the revision brings the December unemployment rate to 6.7%, from 6.6% previously. The Ottawa-based agency updated labor force data from 2001 to 2014 to incorporate the latest census figures.”
