O’Leary says Atlantic Canada would lose transfer payments if it hinders his economic plan

Kevin O’Leary says his only campaign promise is to grow Canada’s GDP by 3%, and this region could lose equalization payments if it hinders that.  The Conservative leadership candidate told Charlottetown’s Guardian newspaper he would meet with premiers to see how they’d help achieve the growth target.  He specifically mentioned cutting transfers to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia if the natural gas moratorium isn’t lifted.
