OTTAWA — Tensions bubbled over at a campaign event in Toronto today when Conservative supporters interrupted reporters during the prime minister’s press conference and hurled expletives at them as they were leaving the event.
Stephen Harper stuck to his main line, that Duffy and his former chief of staff Nigel Wright were to blame for the affair — despite emails at the trial indicating others in his office were discussing the matter.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair says Wright may be in the witness box but that it is Harper who is on trial for Canadians.
Mulcair was addressing supporters in a sedate setting in Nanaimo, B.C., where he spoke about forest fire prevention.
Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is opening his day in Sudbury, Ont., where he is promoting his plan for clean technology jobs.
