Harper echoes campaign themes

WINNIPEG - Prime Minister Stephen Harper echoed all of his campaign themes at a rally this evening in Winnipeg - Canadians need a stable government able to manage the economic recovery, not a "reckless coaliton."

"This is not where any of us should be," he said of the campaign trail. "We should be back at our desks in Ottawa, working on the economy."

Conservative leader Stephen Harper's addressing an assembled crowd of faithful in Winnipeg Tuesday.

Harper touted his budget, saying a coalition of the Liberals, NDP and the Bloc Quebecois would raise taxes, spend agressively and mismanage the economy.

Harper was welcomed by singing sensation Maria Aragon, who sang the national anthem to kick off the event.

He did not announce a candidate in Winnipeg South Centre. It was widely believed Harper would announce school trustee Joyce Bateman as the candidate at the rally.
