HIGHLIGHTS-Bank of Canada's Poloz and Wilkins speak after rate decision

TORONTO, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Below are some key quotes from an appearance on Wednesday by Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz and Senior Deputy Governor Carolyn Wilkins in Ottawa after the central bank left rates on hold.


"The NAFTA risk is outside of our projection for I think evident reasons. We simply don't know enough about what may happen. The range of possibilities is too large for us to analyze. And even so, if something does happen in the NAFTA context, it could take quite some time after a decision is made before it's actually implemented. We need to take those decisions into account in due course when they come.

"At the moment, we're more preoccupied with the four issues that I outlined in more detail."
