"What's starting to happen is even people who've been supportive, including some of the Toronto right-wing media—who've been very supportive of the Conservatives—are starting to turn on them because they realize they've reached a breaking point in terms of their respect for the very institutions that have given Canada peace, order, and good government for almost 150 years," Mulcair said in an interview today at the Georgia Straight office.

The NDP leader noted that parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page recently pointed out that the government kept two sets of books for the F-35 fighter-jet program.

The public was told that taxpayers would pay $15 billion, including operating costs, but the real price was $25 billion.
