While the US economy continues to shed jobs ( albeit more slowly), the Canadian economy is creating them. The Canadian numbers were better than expected. More bad news for the grits. Unfortunately a lot of these jobs were government jobs, so not great news
OTTAWA -- Canada had a net gain of 20,900 people finding work in February, Statistics Canada said Friday.
This helped bring the unemployment rate down one basis point to 8.2%.
These results were better than expectations of economists for a gain of about 15,000 jobs, keeping the jobless rate steady at 8.3%.
