Mr. Speaker, the government is participating de facto in the American missile defence project. CAE has already received $72 million in federal funds in partnership with Boeing. This company is involved in the NMD and the Canadian government is funding it.
The government says that it has not made up its mind and it turns around and subsidizes a corporation that is running simulations for the project.
Why does the government not simply admit it is supporting the missile defence program? What kind of policy hijacking is this?
