Canada's Harper sees slow growth, but no recession

OTTAWA, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Monday he expects continued slow economic growth, but played down the possibility of a North American recession.

“While it has slowed down considerably, and while there remains this considerable instability, the American economy has not crashed, has not itself entered into recession,” he told reporters in Ottawa.

“My own belief is if we were going to have some sort of big crash or recession, we probably would have had it by now.” (Reporting by David Ljunggren, writing by Cameron French; Editing by Peter Galloway)
