Key quotes

"Estimate of the output gap is based on a partially updated estimate of the economy's potential, therefore there may be more uncertainty than usual over the current estimate."

"Excess capacity is not uniformly distributed, but is concentrated on prairies and Newfoundland."

"Slowdown in late 2019 may reflect greater pass-through from international developments than was previously expected, in which case recent pick-up in global indicators is reassuring."

"Weekly survey data suggest consumer confidence may have bottomed sometime in December."
