The last time the Economy experienced a one month gain of at least 0.5 per cent was july 2013 when it grew by 0.63 per cent. That june increase was led by a 3.1 per cent boost in natural resources extraction the category yes first gain following seven consecutive months of decline. Theress nothing to cheer about in the Canadian Gap numbers but theress no reason for any More booing than weave already had Cibic chief economist Avery Shenfeld said tuesday. The Economy is contracting through the first half of the year but the solid gain in june suggests that Well at least get a breather with a return to growth in the third Quarter.
