The Buy Index is the only sub-index showing some optimistic signs, rising slightly from 92.0 to 93.6, which most likely can be attributed to the beginning of spring and home renovation season. “In any event, that is some optimistic news going forward, and Canadians are in somewhat of a spending mood," said Baillie-David.
