Economists with Bank of America Merrill Lynch predicted Thursday that Canada’s economy would shrink by 0.6 per cent in the second quarter, and that the Bank of Canada would be forced to make another interest rate cut. As well, they forecast that a downturn will push the Canadian dollar to under 77 cents US by early 2016.
