Off the Cluff: Ken Peacock

You've heard LNG Canada is the largest private sector investment in Canadian history - but what does that mean?

How big is the LNG Canada decision to the provincial economy? It’s so large that it will add two-tenths of a percentage point to B.C.’s economic growth next year – and likely more in the years to come. But what impact will rising interest rates have? And what about a slowdown in real estate sales?

Ken Peacock is the chief economist for the Business Council of British Columbia and has just released his economic projections for 2019. Ken joined Rick Cluff in studio.

Rick Cluff is an award-winning journalist who hosted the popular CBC Radio Vancouver morning program “The Early Edition” from 1997 until his retirement in April of 2018.

He has conducted more than 50,000 interviews and asked more than half a million questions, of prime ministers, premiers, presidents and some of the world’s biggest sports and entertainment personalities.
