The most telling element of this morning’s Bank of Canada’s policy statement may not be so much the words, as where the central bank has chosen to put them.

The statement’s paragraph on its inflation outlook, which has resided in the bottom half of the statement for literally years in the bank’s eight-times-a-year policy statement, is now at the top.
