Canadian Banks: We're #1

This just in:
Canada has the world's soundest banking system, closely followed by Sweden, Luxembourg and Australia, a survey by the World Economic Forum has found as financial crisis and bank failures shake world markets...
The United States, where some of Wall Street's biggest financial names have collapsed in recent weeks, rated only 40...

In case anyone needs the implications of this spelled out for them, allow me to quote myself:
As Harper rightly pointed out, Canada is not in the same situation as the States and there are many reasons for this.

In other news, polls are stabilizing.

Check out Jane Taber's story today on the Globe and Mail's website regarding the Carbon Tax.

Apparently, Dion told a Halifax audience today that he will go ahead with it regardless of the economy because it will stimulate economic activity.

Now, get this ...

Meanwhile, in Montreal, Iggy is telling reporters that the Liberals might not implement it right away. Maybe only bring in some essential elements. You know, nothing to worry about. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Whose telling the truth?

And which parts are "essential"? I'd bet that we'll just get the carbon taxes. The tax cuts and programs will be put on hold.

And, what's this about stimulating the economy with a carbon tax?

Remember, this is Dion. The same guy introduced by Martin and Goodale yesterday. He knows economics!

Carbon tax = good for economy!! Believe it. Dion said it.
