The S& P/ TSX composite index rose 88.19 points to 15,188.84, while the Canadian dollar fell 0.17 of a U. S. cent to 79.97 cents. Leading the market were TSX energy stocks, with the sector rising 1.9 per cent as the price of crude continued its climb for a second straight session. The May crude contract settled $ 1.84 higher at US$ 53.98 a barrel, a level it last hit on Dec. 30, 2014. The commodity was on the upswing ahead of the latest crude inventory report due Wednesday, which is expected to show a positive combination of lower output and higher demand. Gold prices retreated from a seven- week high as the June bullion contract dropped $ 8 to US$ 1,210.60 an ounce, giving back a chunk of its almost US$ 18 advance on Monday. New York markets pulled back late in the session as traders gave up a rally that drove a sharp rise earlier in the day. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 5.43 points at 17,875.42 and the Nasdaq fell 7.09 points to 4,910.23. The S& P 500 was down 4.29 points at 2,076.33.

O TTAWA — Stephen Harper is making it clear pretty much nothing will make him stray from his balanced- budget target this fiscal year. The prime minister slammed the door Tuesday on the possibility the government would open the vault for a stimulus program to help the economy, which has been hobbled by lower oil prices. Harper’s remarks came a day after the government unloaded its multibillion- dollar stake in General Motors, a deal expected to help the Conservatives achieve their long- running pledge to balance the upcoming election- year budget. The government isn’t contemplating stimulus because the weakened economy is still expected to grow, albeit at a slower rate than anticipated, Harper told a news conference in Vancouver. “ Embarking on a major stimulus program when the economy’s growing, and driving us back into deficit, makes absolutely no long- term economic sense whatsoever,” he said after announcing a change to the student loan program. Harper argued the government will be injecting a “ fair bit of money into the economy” this year — even with a balanced budget — through measures such as “ very large- scale tax cuts” for families and increased infrastructure spending. This week, the government also found a way to pump cash into the federal bank account. On Monday, Ottawa announced it had sold all 73.4 million of its GM shares, the leftovers from the 2009 effort to bail out the then- struggling automaker. The Finance Department said Goldman, Sachs & Co. acquired the stock in an unregistered block trade, but few details of the transaction have been made public. Taxpayers’ GM holdings were worth more than $ 3.3 billion Monday, based on a US$ 36.66 price at the close and an exchange rate of $ 1.2473. But it’s still unclear exactly how much cash the sale will generate for the federal government. Harper has repeatedly insisted the government will erase the deficit despite the oil slump — a promise that could be key to his chances in this year’s election, scheduled for October. The transaction came a few days into the 2015- 16 fiscal year, which means the proceeds will help pad the bottom line in this year’s budget. The budget will be delivered April 21. In November, the government predicted a $ 1.6- billion surplus for 2015- 16, but crude prices tumbled even further in the months that followed. The lower oil prices are expected to indirectly siphon billions of dollars from federal revenues. The oil slump also forced Finance Minister Joe Oliver to take the rare step of postponing the release of the budget until April. The fiscal blueprint is usually presented in February. Oliver said his department needed more time to get a handle on the market instability caused by the oil shock. In hindsight, however, observers and political opponents wonder if postponing the budget until April was done — at least in part — to allow the government to put the proceeds from the stock sale on the books in the current fiscal year. “ The Conservatives would sell the gold out of their grandmothers’ teeth right now,” said Liberal finance critic Scott Brison, who also thinks the Tories delayed the budget to draw attention away from the high- profile criminal trial for suspended senator Mike Duffy. “ They will do anything to create a surplus on the eve of an election.” — The Canadian Press winnipegfreepress. com WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 2015 B 6 SAVERS & INVESTORS REACH WE MORE 74% THE FREE PRESS IN PRINT OR ONLINE EACH WEEK READ Harper firm on balancing budget No stimulus program to help economy hobbled by oil slump By Andy Blatchford B_ 06_ Apr- 08- 15_ FP_ 01. indd B6 4/ 7/ 15 7: 46: 57 PM
