Finance minister says Canada to hit fiscal targets

OTTAWA, Nov 4 (BestGrowthStock) – Canada is on course to meet the
fiscal and economic projections it made last month, Finance
Minister Jim Flaherty said on Thursday.

“Both the IMF and the OECD are of the view that Canada is
in the best fiscal position in the G7,” Flaherty told
legislators in Parliament.

“We are on track with our budget projections, we’re on
track with our fall economic projections. We’ll stay on
course,” he said.

On Oct. 12, Flaherty predicted the government would balance
its budget by 2015-16 after posting a record deficit for
2009-10.
