OTTAWA - Tom Mulcair seems suddenly more open to the idea of a coalition government, now that his New Democrats are in third place in the polls behind the ascendant Liberals.
Two years ago, when the Liberals were on their apparent death bed, Mulcair categorically ruled out a coalition.
Mulcair said then that the Liberals had walked away from a 2008 agreement to form a coalition government with the NDP, proving they couldn't be trusted. He insisted that he would never try working with them again, either formally or informally.
