Finance Minister Announces Stephen Poloz as New Governor of the Bank of Canada - May 2013
In somewhat of a surprise move, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty passed over presumptive favourite Senior Deputy Governor Tiff Macklem in naming Stephen Poloz as the new governor of the Bank of Canada.
Mr. Poloz spent 14 years with the Bank of Canada in numerous roles including Chief of the Bank's Research Department before moving on to Export Development Canada (EDC) where he served as the Chief Economist and, since 2011, as the EDC's CEO and President.
While Mr. Poloz has been outside of monetary policy-making for some time and his views are relatively unknown, we do not expect the Bank's approach to change in a material way in the near future. The Bank will still operate under a flexible inflation targeting regime with a focus on medium-run inflation of 2 per cent and our view remains that interest rates will remain on hold over the next year while the Bank's forward guidance on rates will remain neutral. BCREA Chief Economist, Cameron Muir

Excellence is a Habit
Aside from the usual things like working, eating, and sleeping, what activities do you spend time doing on a daily basis?
This question is to make you aware of some of your daily habits and to motivate you to consider thinking about the consequences that these daily habits will have on your life in terms of your self growth and happiness 1, 5, and 10 years from now.
How your life will turn out will largely depend on what you habitually do on a daily basis. We all know instinctively that spending an hour a day watching mindless TV will lead us down a different path in life compared to spending an hour a day reading or learning something or exercising. We also know that eating bad foods 3 times a day, every day, will give us a different result compared to eating good foods.
Think about the life you want to experience 5 or 10 years from now or even 1 year from now and figure out what habits you would have to develop for your vision to become a reality. Whether it’s being able to speak another language, play an instrument, be an expert in your industry, develop strong friendships, feel healthy and vibrant, or anything else, it’s going to take consistent work over an extended period of time.
If you look at and project the results your habits out into the future and don’t like what you see, the time to make some changes is now.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
