Don't look back in anger

Stephen Harper, Oct. 2. “What Canadians are worried about right now is not the job situation, not losing their home like in the U.S. What they’re worried about is they see the stock-market problems.”

Globe and Mail, today. “Since October, when the Canadian economy took a major turn for the worse, workplaces have shed 213,000 jobs or 1.2 per cent of the work force.”

Stephen Harper, Oct. 1. “Canada is not the United States.”

Canadian Press, today. “And it was far worse, in relation to the population, than the 598,000 jobs retreat reported by the U.S. on Friday.”
