The rumour seems to be showing some truth.
I find the media spin on this quite surprising. The Bloc joined the Tories in blocking (no pun intended) an attempt to open competitive bids for the CF18 jet replacement.
Apparently Bloc MPs were "looking to protect the Quebec-based aerospace industry..."
Not too long ago Stephen Harper was lumping the nefarious Bloc with the NDP and the Fiberals as anti-aerospace for daring to question the uncompetitive contract. Apparently the Bloc had a change in heart regarding the uncompetitive nature of this process.
It's well more than possible that as this session of parliament comes to an end, and then comes another, that some well placed victories may be coming to Stephen Haper... Along with a shiny new arena in Quebec.
