Flaherty says to cut more taxes, debt
CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Wednesday he plans to continue cutting taxes and reducing government debt, and said the country's economic future is bright, despite a U.S. housing downturn that has been deeper than expected.
In a speech in Calgary, Flaherty said Canada's housing market is solid, auto sales are good and financial institutions are well-capitalized.
