Weekly Meeting - Skipped for the Long Weekend

Next Luncheon Meeting is Friday September 8, 2006, 12:30 – 14:00 in the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Laurier Room

Don Drummond, Senior Vice President & Chief Economist, TD Bank Financial Group - "The Outlook for the Canadian Economy and Implications for Investment" The Canadian and U.S. economies appear to be at a turning point with a softening of the U.S. housing market taking the pace of growth down. In anticipation that softer growth will ease inflation pressures, the central banks in the 2 countries have put their interest rate hikes on hold. Mr. Drummond will discuss how the economic cycle will play out with a focus on Canadian economic growth, the sectors that will prosper and suffer and the implications for investment decisions.
