Mark Carney says Canada needs to look beyond U.S. for growth
OTTAWA — Canada needs to look beyond its southern neighbour for markets because the United States economy is unlikely to ever fully recover, Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said Sunday.
In an interview with CTV’s Question Period, Carney said that it is vital for Canada to look for new trading partners in the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere to prevent the economy from being dragged down by the U.S.
“It’s going to take a number of years before they get back to the U.S. that we used to know — in fact, they are not, in our opinion, ultimately going to get back to the U.S. that we used to know,” he said.

•Hart of Dixie (CW, 9 ET/PT) returns for its winter debut as well, compounding the shock many felt when it returned for its second episode.
There’s something to be said for airing on a network that has really low expectations.
A famous dog trainer is killed on Castle (ABC, 10 ET/PT), and the main suspect is a reality star (Hilarie Burton) who became famous, says ABC, “without possessing any discernible skill or talent.”
If you’re wondering whom the show may be mocking, you’ll find lots of ready suspects on-air tonight, hiding out on Bravo or E! or, for that matter, on ABC right before Castle.
•Hawaii Five-0 (CBS, 10 ET/PT) repeats the episode introducing Lauren German as Officer Lori Weston — in case you missed it and have wondered what she’s doing there.
