Mr. Speaker, the Liberals have pulled a CF-18 flip-flop. In opposition they criticized the tendering process. When they are in power they have a chance to right a wrong and they refuse to do it. Like the Tories they awarded Bombardier an untendered $216 million contract. John Turner opposed it. Brian Tobin opposed it. The current foreign affairs minister opposed it. The current health minister opposed it.
How can the Minister of National Defence justify this shameful Liberal flip-flop giving Bombardier an untendered $216 million contract?
