NDP Slams Economic Update
At a time of great economic uncertainty, Canadian families expect MPs from all parties to work together to take bold and immediate steps to ease their concerns. Instead, Stephen Harper rejected the idea of working together for families. Despite calls from economists of all stripes for urgent action, yesterday's Conservative economic update fails to include real measures to kick-start our ailing economy. Nothing to create jobs, assist those who are thrown out of work or bolster consumer confidence. Everyday families are concerned about their savings and losing their jobs. Yet Stephen Harper opted for inaction and political games while refusing to follow the lead of governments around the world who are tackling the crisis head-on.
