    At yesterday's session, BOC' Poloz made a speech before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance in Ontario. He mainly concentrated on lower oil prices. He said, "Oil prices are an important component of Canada's terms of trade and one of the key drivers of movements in the Canadian dollar.
