Harper: "No one wants another election"

Prime Minister to focus on fixing the economy

Speaking in rural Quebec yesterday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said that Canadians don’t want a fall election. The country, he said, is recovering from “the biggest economic crisis since World War II,” and Canadians don’t want instability. When asked about the Liberal’s plans to overthrow the government this fall, Harper said, “We will see.” The Conservatives are currently at odds with the Liberals over changes in employment-insurance benefits, which has led some to conclude that the Liberals will use the issue to trigger a fall election.
