Don't panic, says Harper; Do something, say opponents

OTTAWA — Stephen Harper's rosy view about the economy came under fierce attack Friday as opposition leaders hammered the prime minister for stubborn inaction in the face of an economic crisis.

Taking up the theme from the televised campaign debates, Liberal Leader Stephane Dion accused the Conservatives of having no plan to rescue the Canadian economy and hoping voters won't notice the crisis until after election day Oct. 14.

"In the context of an economic crisis, not to act costs too much - to do nothing is not an option," Dion told a Chamber of Commerce audience in Montreal.
