Canada’s economic leadership forefront at International Economic Conference

Published by Stephanie Brooks on June 12, 2012

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was in Montreal Monday taking some spotlight away from Quebec protesters and discussing the state of international economy.

Both Harper and Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney spoke yesterday at the start of the four-day conference, where international political, economic and government officials gathered. 

In his speech, Harper cited Canada’s strong record of fiscal accountability and sound economic judgement as reasons Canada has come out of the economic crisis better off than others.

Back on the Hill, Monday’s question period mirrored much of the same content, with both sides of the House commenting on Canada’s position in the European debt crisis. While the opposition claimed the government has treated Canada as an economically isolated nation, House Leader Peter Van Loan said Canada is showing the world it is an economic leader by maintaining strength and stability.
