BIV 63: Opening the window to China

Business stories Hayley and Tyler talk about this week include:

The Canadian dollar hits a 14-month low. That’s bad for U.S.-bound travellers, good for exports. Maybe this is the year for a staycation.
The Euro and markets rally after the Macron victory in France. Is this the reversal of populist nationalism?
The U.S. has built too many malls, with resulting fallout and store closures for the retail industry in North America.
Canada considers selective responses to the U.S. import duties on softwood lumber imports.
The provincial election is this week, but since this podcast is being recorded on the day before the vote, the hosts wisely refrain from making any pronouncements.

The feature interview this week:

Sarah Kutulakos, executive director, Canada China Business Council.
Back from a recent trip to China, Kutulakos discusses how Canada is perceived by leaders in the world’s second-largest economy.
Tyler Orton, Hayley Woodin and Kirk LaPointe host.
