The federal election campaign appears to be in full swing.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper pumped his government’s record while stopping in North Vancouver Tuesday morning.
He didn’t miss a chance to take a swipe at his competition. Talking about how his upcoming budget will be balanced, he went after Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s father.
“That phenomenon of deficits getting bigger is how the small deficits that were run by the Trudeau government back in the early 1970s became big deficits that went on for over a generation.”
The federal budget comes down April 21.
Harper was at North Vancouver’s Seycove Secondary today to announce that more students will be eligible for post-secondary funding.
He was also asked about the Mike Duffy trial, which began today in Ottawa.
He told reporters he won’t have to testify, and won’t say much else while the trial is underway.
