NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Canada's economic fundamentals remain strong, as does confidence in the economy, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Tuesday.
Speaking at a joint news conference after talks with the presidents of the United States and Mexico, Harper said: "We've seen a certain slowing, but the fundamentals of the Canadian economy remain very strong, and I think confidence in the Canadian economy is strong.
"We've taken longer-term measures to try to assure our continued growth in the future."
