Inflation rate eases
(TAVIA GRANT, 9/19/06, Globe and Mail)

Canada's inflation rate pulled back in August, climbing at a 2.1-per-cent annual rate, as the pace of price increases slowed at the pump. [...]

The core rate, which excludes the eight most volatile items in the index, was unchanged at 1.5 per cent. This index, closely watched by the central bank as a sign of underlying price changes, has remained stable over the past year, Statscan said.
