September 10 to 26, 2008 – Prime Minister Harper says Liberal leader Stéphane Dion is trying to undermine confidence in the Canadian economy while “sitting on the sidelines virtually cheering for there to be a recession”.
Our economy has hit a brick wall … the tough times are already here.
– Stéphane Dion
Our government will not preside over disastrous financial policies … I would rather lose an election and i would rather lose a vote in Parliament than do something that I know would put the Canadian economy into deep jeopardy.
– Stephen Harper
