Stephen Harper slams Liberals' planned confidence vote as 'irresponsible'
SAINT JOHN, N.B. — The Opposition Liberals are determined to bring down Prime Minister Stephen Harper's minority government Thursday despite Harper's claim, made in New Brunswick Monday, that a "fragile" recovery may be at risk if the country is plunged into its second election in a year.
"Doing anything less than staying focused on the economy is reckless and irresponsible," Harper said. "Trying to force an unnecessary and wasteful election in the middle of a global recession is not in this country's interest."
Yo, Steve! We're staring down the barrel of a $56 billion recession. Any plans?
"Prorogation! See you next March."
Yeah, way to stay focused in the country's interest, douchebag.
