Flaherty: won't run surplus "at any price"
TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian government is on guard against structural deficits but it will not engineer a budget surplus "at any price", Financial Minister Jim Flaherty told a business lunch on Wednesday.
While the government has insisted that it is committed to balancing budgets, some economists have warned that Canada could face a deficit of as much as C$10 billion ($8.2 billion) in the 2009-10 fiscal year that begins next April.
