U.S. Consumer Prices in Rose in February

March 15 (Bloomberg) -- The cost of living in the U.S. rose more than projected in February due to the biggest jump in gasoline prices in more than three years. The consumer-price index was up 0.7 percent, a Labor Department report showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 81 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 0.5 percent increase. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s general economic index eased to 9.2 this month from 10 in February, which was the highest since May.

Trudeau Extends Timeline on Canada Refugee Resettlement
35:22 - Canada will bring in 25,000 refugees by the end of February, at an estimated cost of $678 million, over six years. This is the period of time Justin Trudeau's government expects it will take to re-settle and integrate refugees, financially. The plan will prioritize full families, women-at-risk, men accompanying parents and the LGBT community. Those refugees will mainly come from UN camps in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan.
