Exports to help lift Canadian economy, housing a real risk: Reuters poll

TORONTO/BANGALORE (Reuters) – A pickup in exports will foster stronger economic growth in Canada next year, a Reuters poll found, but many forecasters in the survey expressed concerns over the risks of a housing market correction.
