B.C. Business Confidence Shrinks in August

Monday, August 31, 2015 @ 3:47 AM

Prince George, B.c. – As stock markets shudder and  oil prices  slip,  business confidence in B.C. fell  last month.

According to the  Canadian Federation of Independent Business,  its monthly Business Barometer  index dropped  in B.C. from 67.5 in July to  64.1 in  August.

The CFIB says an index above 50 means there are more  small business owners expecting  their  business’ performance to be stronger in the next year  than those who expect a weaker performance.  An index  between  65 and 75  means the economy is “growing at its potential.

Even with the decline,  B.C.  is still  well above the national index  which  is  56.7, but  is now behind  both PEI and Nova Scotia  when it comes to business optimism.



No huge surprise . Stevie and Crissy both put all our eggs in the same basket . All pie in the sky . Three months ago it was going to wipe out our economy if we didn’t put a pipe line in all our back yards . Now Stevie says that it’s not that big a drag on our economy . Now that Crissy is flipping will Stevie flop ? Flip and flop party of Canada . FFPC got a realistic ring to it .
