The Canadian economy is reopening, get ready for some false starts — podcast with CIBC’s Avery Shenfeld

Summer has officially arrived. The birds are chirping and the flowers are in bloom. Across Canada, the economy is reopening slowly, and it’s already clear that we’re living in a different world.
