Canada PM Stephen Harper defends F-35 program

TORONTO, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Canada's Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the opposition party was "living in a dream world" when Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said a Liberal government would remove the F-35 from their defense bidding process.

Trudeau says the F-35 program is too expensive for his country's security needs, and would be a "nightmare" for Canadian taxpayers. Harper fired back, saying that scrapping the plan would "crater" Canada's aerospace industry.
