Canada's recent election proved Canadians were willing to trust a conservative government to maintain a level of optimism and flourishment through a recession. While Canada has implemented ,by comparison to the U.S. , a very small stimulus to the economy and is keeping taxes low. While the Canadian economy is somewhat thriving (again in comparison-to most of the world), Canadian manufacturers and business are increasingly becoming frustrated with the liberal Obama administration. The U.S. abysmal economy is hurting Canada-U.S. trade and Canadian businesses. While Canada kept their economy in check and corporate taxes low, the spendthrift Obama administration worsened the recession in the U.S. with massive spending, new costly legislations through a recession and fears of tax hikes and uncertainty. While the Canadian conservative government avoided imposing any new tax hikes or burdens on people and businesses, and the people were always informed about the certainties and what they were in for, and what they were not. Canada's reaction to the recession was contrary to the U.S. and President Obama et al. Proving the reaction to the recession was more important than the presence of it.
