Stephen Harper in Saskatchewan

In Stephen Harper’s recent visit to Saskatchewan, he praised the strong economy in our province.  We should be mindful that our strong economy has more to do with a strong resource economy.  We should also credit the provincial SaskParty government for supporting this strong component of our economy.  The Harper conservatives have had little to do with our strong economy, but they have taken us into an unprecedented national debt.  This debt will take a decade or more to pay down and return to annualized balanced budgets.  Stephen Harper has stated certain conservative campaign promises hinge on debt reduction.  Huge debts are bad and Stephen Harper has to take some responsibility for this national problem.
