Prime Minister Stephen Harper test-drove a campaign-style message tonight at a Mississauga rally, telling supporters the Liberals have a "hidden agenda" to raise taxes.
He did not repeat his suggestion of last week that he might move to dissolve his own government.
But Harper quoted Liberal deputy leader Michael Ignatieff's comment to a B.C. radio station that the Liberals were ready for Harper to "bring it on."
He noted that Liberal foreign affairs critic Bob Rae "said it should be before the end of the year, and that Liberal leader Stéphane Dion "said the government should be defeated, but he needs better polls first."
The Prime Minister said while "this Liberal soap opera has been going on" his government has been establishing a record to be proud of.
