Canada sticking to 2 percent growth forecast for 2015: Oliver
DRESDEN, Germany (Reuters) - The Canadian government is sticking to its forecast of 2 percent economic growth this year despite a "quite weak" first quarter, Finance Minister Joe Oliver said in an interview with Reuters on the sidelines of a meeting of finance chiefs in Germany.
Oliver, pressed as to whether the ruling Conservatives would promise more tax cuts in the run-up to an Oct. 19 election, said that as budget surpluses grew, the government would have more flexibility to keep taxes low.
