Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected to focus on security and the economy where Parliament resumes today.
Harper’s Parliamentary Secretary, Paul Calandra told CTV’s Canada AM this morning the Canadian economy is grounded enough to handle the pressure from dropping oil prices.
“All our forecasts show that the economy will continue to grow over the next year and beyond. So, look, there are some challenges that come with a falling oil price but we’re prepared to meet those challenges,” Calandra told CTV.
CBC reports Harper is expected introduce a new anti-terror legislation including “a range of measures …to keep Canadians safe.”
“These measures are designed to help authorities stop planned attacks, get threats off our streets, criminalize the promotion of terrorism and prevent terrorists from travelling and recruiting others,” Harper said in the CBC report.
Parliament Hill will be busy for the next few months heading into the fall federal campaign.
