OTTAWA, April 23 (Reuters) - The Canadian government has no plans to introduce its fiscal update in September or to pump additional stimulus into the economy, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Thursday.

Asked about a news report that Ottawa was contemplating such moves, Flaherty told CTV: "There are no plans to do either of those things." (Reporting by David Ljunggren; Editing by Jeffrey Hodgson)

"Take it out to the parking lot" Jim at work on our behalf.

How wonderful is that.

Hmm this sounds like an excellent reason to list for Jim Flaherty's nomimation to the CAJ's 2009 Code of Silence Awards. That list should be very long, filled with tons of reasons as JF really deserves to win.

Whatever prompts the opposition to start an election sooner than later. Politicians seem to let the media decide these things.

I'm figuring we are going to have an election before fall so in a sense he is correct, he won't be Finance Minister come Sept.
