L'AQUILA, Italy (Reuters) - Canada, which takes over G8 presidency next year, plans to create a broader forum to accompany deliberations of the eight major industrialized nations, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Friday.

Separately, Harper also pledged not to hike taxes to end the deficit and said he saw evidence that job losses were slowing.
