Statements in the House

Public Works and Government Services December 11th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, public works is responsible for most of the properties, and the management of those buildings is usually subcontracted. I am not familiar with the case that the member is discussing, but I would be happy to get back to him about it.

National Defence December 11th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I do not know how to make it more clear: no decision has been made.

We are going to consider all of the information that has been prepared in the various reports, which were made public yesterday, and we will evaluate the different options to make sure that our men and women in uniform get the equipment they need at a price that is responsible to taxpayers.

We will make sure that the troops have the equipment they need by doing life extension to 2025 on the CF-18s.

National Defence December 11th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, as I said, no decision has been taken as part of our seven-point plan. We commissioned several reports, and those are being evaluated. In fact, they have been released publicly. They were tabled yesterday. The information in those will be considered when a decision is made.

Meanwhile, to make sure that our men and women in uniform have the equipment they need, we are doing life extensions so that the F-18 fleet can continue through 2025.

Quite frankly, the NDP, the no defence party, has been arguing to buy absolutely nothing to support our troops.

National Defence December 11th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, as I have said before, no decision has been made on replacing the CF-18 fleet. We want to make sure that our men and women in uniform have the equipment they need, which is why we are doing a life extension on the CF-18s so that they can run right through until 2025.

In our commitment to transparency, we released three reports yesterday and all of the unclassified reports, and all of the information therein will be taken into consideration when a decision is made.

Public Works and Government Services December 10th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, in fact, no decision has been made on the purchase of replacements for the CF-18s. We will always ensure that our brave men and women in uniform will have the equipment that they need and deserve to do the job that we ask of them. This is why the CF-18s are being life-extended to maintain their capability right through 2025.

Public Works and Government Services November 28th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, it is very important to respect taxpayers. That is why we are modernizing several systems that deliver services to Canadians. This includes consolidating some computer systems. I can assure the member that every employee will be getting assistance in order to continue working for the federal government.

Public Works and Government Services November 28th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, our government promised Canadians that it would respect the money they pay in taxes.

That is why we are modernizing service delivery systems and improving the services we provide to Canadians. This will make the services more efficient. All of the employees will receive or have received offers so that they can continue to work for the federal government.

Public Works and Government Services November 28th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, our government made a commitment to taxpayers that we would run this government in a much more responsible way when it came to how we spend their dollars, and we would improve service delivery for them.

Our consolidation of services includes streamlining, increasing accessibility, and making sure that, as we do that, we offer employees every opportunity to continue work with the federal government.

Public Works and Government Services November 24th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, it is true that the former Liberal government awarded a contract following a failed procurement process. That is why the company turned to the courts and is no longer providing services.

We will ensure that future contracts do a better job of protecting taxpayers' money.

Public Works and Government Services November 24th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, the government did indeed reach an agreed-upon settlement with the company following on the very failed procurement by the previous Liberal government.

We are committed to ensuring that Canadians do receive value for their hard-earned tax dollars. That is why we are reviewing the process again to ensure that any new contracts will meet those standards.
