Duly Quoted: Stephen Harper

“This budget, the next phase in Canada’s economic action plan, is intended to ensure that the economic recovery continues in this country…The opposition parties still have an opportunity to put Canadians’ interests first… I am disappointed that they did not take the time to read the budget before rushing to their conclusions. Our budget is not a political game.”
