  • Print

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is in Winnipeg today for a brief meeting with local business owners.

At the meeting, open to photographers but closed to reporters, are Calvin Vaags of The Carvers' Knife, Ryan Hart of mf.1, Kelly Lewis of Packers Fashion, Danny Kleinsasser of Danny's Whole Hog, Philip and Mychelle Houde of River East Travel & Cruise Centre, and Randy Viray of Randy Viray Financial.

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."
