Moreover, the Bloc Québécois will comment this morning on the new Liberal cabinet.

New Democratic Party Leader Jagmeet Singh is also holding a morning media availability where he wants to discuss his party’s priorities over the coming weeks. If the NDP leader also wants to discuss the COP26 summit, he will certainly be challenged on the approach his party intends to adopt in the environmental issue, now led by Steven Guilbeault.

This group is made up of doctors, nurses and pharmacists, among others. Superior Court judge Michel Yergeau has already said he wanted to proceed quickly and that he hoped to deliver his judgment before November 15.

“It is in the interest of the Quebec community to benefit from a judgment on the question, rather than having impressions on the right and on the left,” he declared.

Movement for the key rate?

The Bank of Canada will announce this morning whether it decides to change its key rate, currently at its “floor value” of 0.25%. The central bank may want to lower inflation, which has been rising in recent months. It could also consider that the causes of it are temporary and leave its rate unchanged.

The Governor of the Bank of Canada, Tiff Macklem, will also speak in the morning on this subject. He will also comment on the update to his monetary policy report, also presented today.
