Canada won't have asset "fire sale": Harper
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Canada will never have a "fire sale" of government assets, but will still examine the possibility of privatizing some holdings to help avoid a budget deficit, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday.
The comment comes a day after Finance Minister Jim Flaherty jokingly raised the possibility of selling Toronto's iconic CN Tower as part of a government review of national assets.
