"Carbon tax would trigger recession: Harper"

Bingo... linking the Carbon Tax with the "R" word, "Recession", is EXACTLY what Canadians need to hear... the stark and dangerous reality of voting Liberal this time around.

More good reviews on this morning's Quebec swing here.

    Well, it is interesting that Harper keeps on speaking of these "difficult economic times". I wonder if it ever occurs to him, or on his little cheerleaders like yourself, that Canada's economic position has slipped so dramatically on his watch.

    The latest is for the first time in modern history, productivity has dropped during the entire period of his government.

    Yikes.

    No wonder he wants to continue to scaremonger.

    Harper prepares for defeat!

    He knows he's led us down the path to recession, and now he's setting up a convenient scapegoat in preparation for the next election.

    Good strategy.

    The Green Shift will cause a recession, if implemented.

    Also, Marc, if Harper loses this election, he's out of a job. So it's not a "Good Strategy" for him.

    If Harper wins a reduced minority, he may still be out of a job...

    This is a risky call for him, he needs to win.

    "that Canada's economic position has slipped so dramatically on his watch"

    It is naive to ignore the world economic conditions. The U.K and Spain are expected to enter a recession. Mind you, when Clinton left office the economy seemed buoyant but it was based on a shakey internet bubble and Enron-style accounting.

    hey you jokers. canada has to follow the world. if economic activity slides world wide we slide. if the liberals in ontario screw things up ontario suffers. use your bloody head. unless we start working and not sucking of those who do, we will suffer economic collapse. we have been fortunate here in that our resourse wealth has insulated us from the negative effects of excessive government. if our population was 100 million we would be living in poverty, except for those in goverment.

    Holy crap can you imagine how much worse it would be with the Liberals in power??? They'd be spending like a drunk lottery winner on every hair-brained social program they can think of. Why not? They can always raise taxes to get more cash!

    A column from the Sun today, http://www.torontosun.com/money/columnists/linda_leatherdale/2008/09/11/6732271-sun.html

    I’ve heard several doom and gloom predictions over the past year very similar to what Linda’s saying, from local businessmen and from economic professionals.
    When I was in Northern Ireland and Scotland a few months back, the housing market was dropping like a stone, the economy in general was on its way down. In fact the whole EU is in a down turn cycle.

    Canada has 0.5% of the world population, with 2.3% of the worlds GDP, no matter how important we feel we are, we are irrelevant to the vast majority of the world economically. China has cities with a greater population then our entire country.
    The credit crunch south of the border is coming to bite us in the rear end very soon. We’re just along for the ride folks.

    I don’t care who the PM is, we’re going to get hit hard. Increasing taxes and increasing the price of goods, is not the thing you do in an economic downturn.

    Flaherty has outspent any Liberal finance minister in history, no question.

    Where's the "conservative" in that?
