Mr. Speaker, obviously no. I find this very puzzling. For years the NDP has wanted to cut defence spending. Here is an opportunity to save the taxpayers $20 million a year and it wants the defence department to spend more money, not less.
We are out to save the taxpayers money, to provide support services to the Canadian military in a more efficient and effective way and to do it in a way that is fair and humane to our employees. We intend to do that.
