The meeting is hosted by Doug Cook of MuddRuckers.

Harper is accompanied by Ted Menzies, MP for Macleod and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance. Several Manitoba MPs are also attending.

Harper is traveling across the country seeking advice from small business owners.

In a statement today, the Harper government said the economic consultations are to seek Canadians' views on the next phase of Canada's Economic Action Plan.

"The economic recovery remains fragile and Canadians remain concerned about the economy, jobs and their household budgets," Harper said. "That is why our government’s number one priority remains the economy and we continue to be focused on creating jobs and supporting families."
