Who's been talking down the Canadian economy, Mr. Harper?

Harper today:
"We need a government and a Parliament that is on the side of the Canadian economy. That will tackle our economic challenges by building our economy up - not by talking it down."
Harper Finance Minister, Deficit Jim, February 29, 2008:
"If you're going to make a new business investment in Canada, and you're concerned about taxes, the last place you will go is the province of Ontario."
Can you see the blatant hypocrisy?

Oh, and Deficit Jim got back to us on the second-last place to invest in Canada...it's Manitoba. Congratulations, Manitoba! You have joined the prestigious ranks of provinces talked down by Deficit Jim!

Seems to me if Mr. Harper really meant what he said today, he'd give Deficit Jim the boot...but this is the election where everything is OK if you're a Conservative, right?
