CTV: Mayor Mark Sutcliffe’s office at city hall was broken into to overnight. The Ottawa police investigating the break-in say it does not seem like it was politically motivated.

“Staff discovered the break-in when they arrived at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday,” Sutcliffe said. The Ottawa Police Service told CTV News in an email that officers were called to the scene at around 8:30 a.m.

Although, the mayor’s office was broken into, his private office was not.

Ottawa Police and Sutcliffe have not provided anymore details about the break-in but officers are still investigating the scene.

National Post: The Parliamentary Budget Office is predicting a higher federal deficit of $7 billion.

The PBO released their economic report on Tuesday forecasting that the government will have a $46.8-billion deficit this year. The prediction is higher than what the Liberals had predicted of $40.1 billion.

“It certainly does not suggest that we are returning to balanced budgets, probably smaller deficits than what we have seen,” said Yves Giroux, a parliamentary budget officer. “Although, again, it’ll depend on how much new spending is in the government’s budget when it’s tabled next month.”

One surprise could be unexpected moves on interest rates. Giroux potentially sees the Bank of Canada making cuts to interests rates in the beginning of April, but it may not happen.
