Canada enters G-20 in strong fiscal position: Harper
WINNIPEG — Canada is joining a key economic summit in Washington with the strongest fiscal position of the Group of Seven industrialized countries, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday.
Canada’s monetary policy is keeping inflation in check and steps his government has taken to reduce taxes and the federal debt bode well in the face of a global economic crisis, Harper said before heading for the G-20 leaders’ meeting in the U.S. capital.
Well – gotta give him the tax reduction thing – but reducing the federal debt? C’mon Stevo! We all know it was the Grit slash and burn policies under Chretien and Martin that brought deficits and debt under control! Your government is going to add to the debt due in part to the cutting of the GST!
Man, this guy can spin ANYTHING!
