(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - March 10, 2011:
Parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page, who has cast doubt before on the government's accounting practices, was asked by the Liberal Opposition to look at the F-35 deal with U.S. defence giant Lockheed Martin.
Previous reports by Page have questioned the government's deficit projections and its plan to cut the size and cost of the federal bureaucracy.
Thursday's report again puts him at odds with the Conservatives and gives weight to opposition party arguments that the purchase of the jets would cost more than the government has been saying.
