Canada’s Trade Deficit Up

Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Canada


Canada is having some trade issues:

Canada’s trade deficit swells to $1.6B

‎Montreal Gazette – Mark KennedyThe trade deficit for June was $1.6 billion, up from $1 billion a month before.

Exports were down 1.7 per cent to $36.5 billion, with declines led by energy products and automotive parts. Imports declined 0.2 per cent to $38 billion in June, and energy products played a key role in this drop as well.

Gloomy Canada trade figures likely to hit growth

‎Reuters – David LjunggrenAlex Leff
OTTAWA, Aug 11 (Reuters) – Slumping exports propelled Canada to a much larger trade deficit than expected in June, most likely slashing second-quarter growth figures to well below already modest predictions.

So, the USA is not the only Anglo-nation in North America with economic concerns–and increased trade deficits tend to be linked to increased debt.  Decreased imports and exports suggest a slowing of growth and perhaps a contraction in the Canadian economy.  Unlike the USA, however, Canada is in a better position to increase its exports relative to its GDP without having to massively devalue its currency.

Yet, despite having natural resources and many overseas international trading partners, because of its geographic location, its economic history, and what is recorded in biblical prophecy, Canada is tied in with the United States of America.

To a great degree, Canada is expected to share the fate of the USA, which ultimately will not be good (Daniel 11:39; Jeremiah 30:7) until after Jesus returns, when problems like slavery, which will have been imposed, will end (Jeremiah 30:8).
