Canada March retail sales 0.7% vs. +0.3% expected

Canadian retail sales data for March
Overall a pretty good report if you look at the ex auto.  It seems people are spending money on the big ticket items (home and cars), and cutting back on the smaller items like clothing, personal care, and even food purchases.  Will those big ticket items slow down the road too?  Time will tell.
