5 things to know for today: Rate hike impending

The Bank of Canada is expected to announce yet another interest hike, First Nations investigators find ‘evidence of genocide,’ and Toronto police charge four teens after a swarming attack. Here’s what you need to know to start your day.

1. One last rate hike?: The Bank of Canada is expected to announce yet another interest hike on Wednesday, and economists are hoping that it will be the last one for a while.

2. ‘Evidence of genocide’: An organization investigating unmarked graves near a residential school in eastern Alberta says it has uncovered “physical and documented evidence of a genocide.”

3. Swarming attack: Four 13-year-old boys have been charged in connection with a “swarming” attack on board a bus in Toronto.

4. Great resignation?: In late 2021, we asked Canadians to share their stories about how they changed jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic. CTVNews.ca caught up with some of those people to see where they are now, and ask whether the decision they made was the right one.

5. Academy Awards: A select group of Canadians is up for Oscar glory including Torontonian Sarah Polley who vies for best picture and best adapted screenplay with her drama “Women Talking.”
