The S& P/ TSX composite index was down 3.47 points at 15,107.00 despite earnings reports so far from five of the country’s six largest banks, all of which have beat analyst expectations. The loonie was up 0.16 of a U. S. cent at 80.42 cents. In commodities, July oil put the brakes on three days of losses on the New York Mercantile Exchange, gaining 17 cents to $ 57.68 a barrel. However, the important TSX energy sector was still posted a slight loss. Gold gained $ 2.50 to US$ 1,188.10 an ounce, while July copper slipped a fraction of a penny to US$ 2.77 a pound. Also top of mind was the Greek sovereign debt crisis amid mixed messages about a possible deal between Greece and its creditors. Failure to secure a deal could lead to Athens defaulting on its debts, with effects for the euro and world economy. In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 36.87 points at 18,126.12, while the Nasdaq lost 8.61 points to 5,097.98 after a record high Wednesday.

T H E M A R K E T S O N 0 5 . 2 8 . 1 5 SAVERS & INVESTORS REACH WE MORE 74% THE FREE PRESS IN PRINT OR ONLINE EACH WEEK READ CALGARY — A recession is unavoidable in Alberta this year, a report by the Conference Board of Canada said. The province’s economy is expected to shrink by 0.7 per cent in 2015, even though oil prices seem to have stabilized at around US$ 60 a barrel, the Ottawa- based think- tank said Thursday. Next year, it’s calling for modest growth of 1.1 per cent. “ Alberta’s economic performance will be underwhelming this year and next, especially compared with recent years,” said Marie- Christine Bernard of the board. “ Oil prices remain well below break- even levels for most new projects in the oilpatch.” The board expects 24,000 job losses in the construction and mining sectors, which will hurt the housing market and retail sales. But the good news is the job market in other non- energy sectors appears to be holding up relatively well and the unemployment rate in the province is expected to average 5.6 per cent this year, lower than the national average. Also on the positive side, the energy industry has been able to boost production thanks to past investments, and oilsands crude has been able to make its way to the lucrative Gulf Coast market. The economic hit this time around is not expected to be as severe as during the 2008 and 2009 downturn, when there was a widespread financial crisis. The forecast did not incorporate potential changes under the new provincial NDP government, such as higher corporate taxes and royalties. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is still getting her feet wet in going through the province’s struggling economy but suggested the conference board report isn’t much of a surprise. “ We’re getting a number of different projections and we’re looking at all of them right now,” Notley said in Calgary. “ We know that due to circumstances well beyond our control that our economy is a volatile one, and we may be struggling a bit but we’re going to look at all of the re- indicators and will act appropriately.” While oil- producing Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador are being hurt by low prices, British Columbia, Manitoba and Central Canada are expected to post the strongest economic growth during the next two years. — The Canadian Press Alberta can’t fight off recession: think- tank T HEY’VE said it before, but this never gets old. The Conference Board of Canada is once again trumpeting Manitoba as one of the country’s top economic performers over the next two years. In its latest quarterly provincial outlook released Thursday, the Ottawa think- tank predicts Manitoba will rack up the secondstrongest real gross domestic product growth in Canada this year, and will lead the country in 2016, with growth both years of 2.8 per cent. That’s essentially the same thing it said in a report released in February. The only difference is it has tweaked the growth number. In February, it forecast growth of 2.9 per cent this year and three per cent in 2016. Marie- Christine Bernard, associate director of the board’s provincial forecast, said there was no single reason for the slight downgrade in growth projections. “ I think we might have housing ( starts) not quite as strong because the market is easing,” she said. She also noted when the earlier forecast was prepared, the final economic numbers for 2014 weren’t available. Now they are, “ so we’re kind of starting from a little bit different point.” But no matter the reasons, Bernard noted the downgrade isn’t significant. “ It ( 2.8 per cent) is still very strong ( growth).” In the latest forecast, Bernard says “ as a wind of change blows through the country thanks to the slide in oil prices, Manitoba will be one of the country’s strongest economic performers until at least 2016.” She said strong growth in construction, a rebound in agriculture and stable domestic demand are expected to lift labour markets and boost Manitoban’s disposable income. The board expects construction output to grow by 6.1 per cent this year and by 9.5 per cent in 2016 thanks to investments in both residential and non- residential development, several hydro projects in northern Manitoba, and increased spending under the provincial government’s five- year infrastructure program. It also predicts the agriculture sector will rebound from a difficult year in 2014, with growth of five per cent this year, while the transportation and warehousing sector should enjoy growth of 4.7 per cent this year and 3.9 per cent in 2016 . “ Metal mining will also post solid growth, while growth in the manufacturing sector will remain healthy over the medium term,” it adds. “ And with the economy as a whole growing at a healthy pace, employment is expected to grow at an annual pace of 1.6 per cent this year and next.” murray. mcneill@ freepress. mb. ca Manitoba to post strong growth By Murray McNeill COLLEEN DE NEVE / THE CANADIAN PRESS FILES Marie- Christine Bernard of the conference board says Manitobans’ disposable income is up.
