With the Harper Goverment defeat due to Contempt of Parliament charges (first time in Commonwealth) dealing the F-35s and other thing, I thought it might be a good time to revist this thread.

The big issue was the goverment claim (with no sourcing) that the planes would cost about $75m (CAN$ about = USA$) each. This appears (to me) to be as likely as Canada nuking the USA. What do the rest of you think?
