Manitoba's retail sales also edged higher in March, rising by 0.3 per cent to $1.64 billion from $1.63 billion in February.

"The fact that core (inflation) remains so muted is a fairly strong argument in favor of not following any lead by the Fed in the immediate future", said Doug Porter, chief economist at BMO Capital Markets.
