O’Leary Mortgages is No More … Canada’s most outspoken capitalist has pulled the plug on brokering. After a little over a year in the business, Kevin O’Leary’s mortgage operation has closed. <http://www.canadianmortgagetrends.com/.a/6a00d8341c74cb53ef01a3fcec0ee6970b-pi> O’Leary’s model was to make mortgages “simple”… As we all know in the mortgage business, however, terms, legal disclosures and lender commitments are anything but simple.

From Td Economics
• Shockwaves were sent by the sudden and track loss of former Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, who was a key architect of Canada’s economic outperformance in recent years.
• Housing starts fell to 156,000 annualized units in March, down from 190,000 in the month prior. On a three-month moving average (175,000 units), housing starts have moved more in line with a pace of construction that is consistent with both our forecast for housing starts this year, and underlying economic fundamentals (like job gains and population growth).
• In the Bank of Canada outlook survey released this week, businesses pointed to a depreciation in the Canadian dollar and improving economic conditions in the U.S., as key reasons for improved sentiment in the first three months of this year
