Canadians should consider themselves privileged to have a majority government in these difficult times, says the head of the OECD.
“Count your blessings Canada, you just got a majority government,” Angel Gurria, secretary-general of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, told participants at the Conference of Montreal on Monday.
Many other countries are trying to cope with the fallout from the global economic crisis with governments that change frequently or that are caretaker or minority governments, he said.
