REUTERS/Mark Blinch/File PhotoOTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada’s economy grew by a record 40.5% on an annualized basis in the third quarter, rebounding from a historic plunge in the second quarter, as businesses and stores reopened from COVID-19 lockdowns, Statistics Canada said on Tuesday. The annualized gain for the third quarter is lower than the 47.6% increase forecast in a Reuters survey of analysts. “The increase in GDP in the third quarter reflected reopening of the economy, with substantial upturns in housing investment, household spending on durable goods, and exports,” StatsCan said. Despite the rebound in the third quarter, economic activity remains 5.3% below the fourth quarter of last year, before the pandemic hit, StatsCan said.

There were some moderate upward revisions to the prior two quarters, which slightly softens the blow. On that front it’s mildly encouraging that September’s gain was still relatively solid and October did manage, at least a first blush, looks like it printed some modest growth. So the economy had a bit of momentum going into the shutdowns.”

Workers make jackets at the Canada Goose factory in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, February 23, 2018. The IHS Markit Canada Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ index (PMI) rose to a seasonally adjusted 55.8 in November from 55.5 in October. The output index stayed solidly in expansion territory, dipping to 55.1 from 55.2 in October, which was its highest in more than two years. The measure of new orders also showed solid expansion, while the employment index rose to 52.5 from 51.2. Material shortages, supplier delays and transportation restrictions linked to the pandemic led to another deterioration in vendor performance during November, IHS Markit said.

Canadian pot producers may scale back in Europe: industry report

Slideshow ( 2 images )(Reuters) - Canadian cannabis producers are likely to scale back their investments in Europe as they come under pressure to cut costs and deliver profit, according to a joint report by two industry consultants on Tuesday. They, however, projected the current market at just a tenth of that value and said some Canadian companies may choose to follow two of the sector’s big players - Aurora Cannabis Inc and Canopy Growth Corp - in trimming spending outside North America. “Though they remain a tremendous force in Europe, forward momentum among (Canadian) liquidity providers will slow in the future, especially in newer or smaller markets,” the consultants said, adding this would give more room for European players. Cannabis investment in North America has surged in the past three years as Canada became the first major country to legalize the drug for recreational use, giving its firms a head start at a time when Europe and U.S. Federal rules remain more restrictive. Aurora already has a distribution network in Germany, while Aphria Inc and Tilray have established major production hubs in Denmark and Portugal, and may not need additional investment, the report said.

OTTAWA—Canada’s deficit is growing at the fastest rate among developed nations as it seeks to prop up its economy during the Covid-19 pandemic. Canadian officials are betting the aggressive approach will pay off, pointing to the number of jobs already recovered, and argue that the country can afford to pour money into the economy while borrowing costs are historically low. But some economists warn the heavy spending could lead to a fiscal crisis, and one major ratings firm has already stripped the country of its triple-A rating.

Oil falls after OPEC+ talks delay sets off supply alarm

TOKYO (Reuters) - Oil prices fell on Tuesday as concerns over mounting supply returned to the fore after leading producers delayed talks on 2021 output policy, while the coronavirus pandemic continues to sap fuel demand. FILE PHOTO: A TORC Oil & Gas pump jack is seen near Granum, Alberta, Canada May 6, 2020. West Texas Intermediate was down by 30 cents, or 0.7% at $45.04, having dropped 0.4% in the previous session. OPEC+ delayed talks on output policy for next year until Thursday, three sources told Reuters, as key players still disagreed on how much oil they should pump amid weak demand. Sources said the UAE had complicated the picture by signalling it would be willing to support a rollover of supply cuts only if group members’ compliance with cut commitments improved.

FILE PHOTO: A TORC Oil & Gas pump jack is seen near Granum, Alberta, Canada May 6, 2020.

OPEC+, which includes the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, Russia and other allies, delayed talks on output policy for next year until Thursday, sources told Reuters, as important players had not reached consensus. But with demand still under pressure from the pandemic, OPEC+ was considering extending current cuts into the first months of next year, a position backed by de facto OPEC leader Saudi Arabia, sources said.

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, said on Tuesday that her government has raised concerns with China about its using an image of an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child. “New Zealand has registered directly with Chinese authorities our concern over the use of that image,” Ardern told reporters in the parliament in the capital Wellington. New Zealand has a shared history, close cultural ties, geographic proximity and a strong economic relation with Australia. New Zealand will host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) next year, taking over from Malaysia, where the global event was held this year. Australia’s relationship with China has deteriorated since Canberra called for an international inquiry into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

The threat of digital services taxes has prompted threats of trade retaliation from outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration. The new tax would come into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, and remain in place until a common approach is agreed upon. The measure would raise federal revenues by C$3.4 billion ($2.6 billion) over five years, starting in the 2021-22 fiscal year. “Canadians want a tax system that is fair, where everyone pays their fair share,” Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland told legislators in the fall economic update. Ottawa also plans to oblige people renting out short-term accommodation to charge sales taxes, saying popular digital rental platforms do not currently have to impose the taxes.

Exxon tries to put the worst behind it with $20 billion writedown
  + stars: | 2020-11-30 | by ( Jennifer Hiller | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
HOUSTON (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil Corp on Monday said it would write down the value of natural gas properties by $17 billion to $20 billion, its biggest ever impairment, and slash project spending next year to its lowest level in 15 years. New cost cuts aim to protect a $15 billion a year shareholder payout that many analysts believe is unsustainable without higher prices. The writedown lays bare the size of the miscalculation that the company made in 2010 when it paid $30 billion for U.S. shale producer XTO Energy as natural gas prices went into a decade-long decline. Not mentioned was its Mozambique liquefied natural gas project. Next year’s spending will fall, to between $16 billion to $19 billion, but Exxon will increase spending by 2025 to more than this year’s about $23 billion level, Woods said.

REUTERS/James Oatway(Reuters) - Diamond mining giant De Beers on Monday outlined plans to ethically source its diamonds and be carbon neutral by 2030 due to growing investor pressure on companies to be environmentally and socially responsible. The initiative is the latest example of a miner setting sustainability goals in an industry blamed for depletion of natural resources, smuggling and child labor in supply lines. The company has tracked high-value diamonds from miner to retailer using blockchain to clear the supply chain of imposters and conflict minerals. Advocacy group Human Rights Watch had warned this month that major jewellery brands are still not doing enough to combat human rights and environmental abuses in their gold and diamond supply chains.

Fake Claims About Dominion Voting Systems Do Real Damage

Accurate, transparent and accessible elections—this is the objective that motivated me to create Dominion Voting Systems 18 years ago in Canada. None of Dominion’s systems use the Smartmatic software that has come under attack, as any state certification lab could verify. Dominion voting machines do one thing: accurately tabulate votes from county-verified voters using a durable paper ballot controlled and secured by local elections officials. Some of the main counties where results have been contested, like Philadelphia and Allegheny (Pittsburgh), don’t even use Dominion voting systems. In fact, across the 14 Pennsylvania counties that use Dominion systems, President Trump received 52.2% of the vote.

SINGAPORE – Developing countries may face a long wait if they want a vaccine made in the West, but there's always the option of turning to China , says an economist from DBS. "Considering the billions of doses needed, and the risk [of] falling at the back of a very long line for Western vaccines, the appeal of the Chinese vaccines is apparent," Taimur Baig, chief economist and managing director at DBS Group Research, said in a note. There will be a rush to procure Western vaccines when they're approved by regulators, and poorer countries may find them unaffordable. According to Citi, developed countries have collectively secured 85% of total bilateral pre-orders of coronavirus vaccines. Sinopharm, or China National Pharmaceutical Group, reportedly submitted an application to Chinese authorities last week seeking approval.
