Toronto Star: Harper's terror fixation draws attention from Canada's failing economy

Two issues dominate Canadian politics. One is talked about. The other is not.

The one talked about is terrorism. It is the topic of the day.

Politicians furiously debate the government’s new anti-terror bill. Does it go too far? Would it do any good if passed?

Or, perversely, would it make matters worse?

The issue that is not much talked about any more — at least by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government — is the economy.

At a fundamental level, the economy is failing. Any number of studies point to this fact. The latest was released this week by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.
