Canada Will NOT Save Europe
Harper says no Canadian money for European bailout

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday there is no thought of Canada contributing to a European bailout fund.

"We see absolutely no reason why Canada, or frankly why any range of other countries, would need to contribute to such a bailout," he said following the conclusion of the two G20 meeting in Cannes, France.

"These are wealthy countries who do have, and have got to have, the means of dealing with their own problems," Harper told reporters.

The financial crisis facing Greece and other countries, including Italy, was the key issue at the meeting. Greek legislators geared up for a crucial confidence vote in the beleaguered Socialist government Friday, as both main parties floated plans to approve a massive European bailout and call new elections.
