The CBC News reported early this morning that: Bank of Canada's key interest rate not expected to change - and guess what... they nailed it.

Just as everyone expected, In a press release posted by the Bank of Canada this morning on their website, "The Bank of Canada maintains overnight rate target at 1 per cent".
