Bank of Canada expected to hike rates despite geopolitical risks

BNN: 'The Bank of Canada is still widely expected to begin hiking its key lending rate Wednesday despite intensifying geopolitical risks.

'“Geopolitical tensions have increased, but we still expect the Bank of Canada to hike rates [this] week with domestic economic conditions looking substantially stronger and inflation running above-target,” said Nathan Janzen, senior economist at RBC Economics, in a note to clients on Tuesday.'
