Brian Mulroney is surprised by your gall


 

The former prime minister talks to the CBC on the anniversary of his first majority government.

The former PM also said he was surprised by the earlier insistence from Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty that the country wasn’t headed for a recession. “Yeah, I was surprised by that … but it was in an election campaign. And, you know, sometimes people take a little licence during campaigns,” Mulroney said.
