    Opening Statement before the Senate Banking, Trade and Commerce Committee

    Opening Statement David Dodge Senate Banking, Trade and Commerce Committee
    The last time that I appeared before this committee was after the release of our April Report. Since then, our economy has been hit by a number of unusual shocks. Because of these shocks and other factors, growth has been weaker than expected. We now estimate that there is more slack in the economy than we had projected in April.

    Opening Statement before the House of Commons Finance Committee

    Opening Statement David Dodge House of Commons Finance Committee
    The last time that Paul and I appeared before this committee was after the release of our April Report. At that time, inflation was well above its 2 per cent target, and short-term inflation expectations had edged up. Although inflation was being pushed up by special factors, there were also signs that strong domestic demand was working to broaden pressures on prices.
