    Canadian wholesale sales edged down 0.1% to $63.6 billion in August

    Sales were down in four of seven subsectors, representing 65% of total wholesale sales. The building material and supplies and the motor vehicle and parts subsectors led the declines in August, while the machinery, equipment and supplies subsector posted the largest gain.

    In volume terms, wholesale sales edged down 0.1%.

    The building material and supplies subsector declined for the second time in three months, down 2.3% to $9.5 billion in August. Sales were down in two of three industries, with the lumber, millwork, hardware and other building supplies industry (-3.5%) contributing the most to the decline. The decrease in August offset the gain in July for both the subsector (+1.2%) and the industry (+0.3%). Related indicators including housing starts (-6.4%), and exports of forestry products and building and packaging materials (-2.8%) also declined in August.

    The big news out of the Bank of Canada's meeting this week may not be another rate hike but the potential that the central bank removes guidance that future increases will be gradual, says CBA

    That could help the loonie outperform near-term if that phrase is dropped. Canada's economy is operating close to capacity, and downside risk has been reduced following the new North America trade pact.

    Tertiary industry activity climbed 0.5 percent, following a 0.1 percent fall in July.

    On a yearly basis, all industry activity advanced 0.9 percent, the same rate of expansion as logged in July.

    Aging Japan: Unclaimed funerary urns accumulate in Japan amid weakening social ties

    Unclaimed funeral urns, accumulated by thousands throughout Japan, reflecting the weakening of family ties and economic pressure in a rapidly aging country, says a Reuters editorial.

    The personalities of the dead, cremated at public expense, are usually known. But in most cases, relatives either refuse or do not respond to requests to collect their remains. Burials can be expensive and time consuming, which is a burden for family members who hardly know the deceased relative.

    Abandoned remains indicate social, economic and demographic changes in Japan, where more and more older people live on welfare, and families are more fragmented, indicating a weakening of traditional family ties and obligations.

    Experts say this is a problem that is likely to grow. Mortality in Japan is projected to increase from 1.33 million per year to 1.67 million by 2040, even when the total population decreases.

    Traditional funerals, including food, drinks and gifts for guests, as well as hiring a Buddhist monk, can cost 2 million yen ($ 17,800) or more, industry sources say.

    New businesses have appeared, offering a no-nonsense funeral for between $ 2,000 and $ 4,000, but other expenses may arise, including hundreds of dollars and burial of an urn in a temple or cemetery.
