Talking of a Hurry When He stalled for Months
Last fall when we didn't need an election. Mr Harper broke his law and called one. He told us the economic fundamentals were sound and ridiculed those of opposing views. When Parliament opened in November he introduced a budget calling for a surplus and denied the economic woes. When the other parties called him on his inaccuracies he ran to the Governor General to prorogue parliament.He then did nothing to stimulate the economy for 6 weeks. In January his government brings forward a new budget and he and his finance minister are suddenly being impatient. Yesterday he claimed the economy would recover soon if the stimulus budget passed quickly. To day Mr. Page's report is not nearly as glowing indicating the economic downturn is more sever than Mr Harper would have us believe.
I feel Mr Harper is again misleading the country to cover up his own inept actions and constant misunderstanding of the economic situation.
