Mr. Speaker, one year ago, Palliser residents voted for a government that would get things done for Canadians.
As the home to 15-Wing, the people of Moose Jaw know that they now have a federal government that will support our armed forces and ensure that the men and women of our military have the equipment they need to get the job done.
Since being elected last year, our government has made a major commitment to strengthening the Canadian armed forces.
Our $17.1 billion “Canada First” procurements to date include: $5 billion for strategic and tactical aircraft; $2 billion for medium to heavy-lift helicopters; $1.1 billion for medium sized logistics trucks; and, $2.1 billion for three supply ships.
Our commitment to protect Canadians, defend our sovereignty and strengthen our role in the world is good news for Canadians and for Palliser.
Our Conservative government is committed to Canada's Snowbirds and to funding the NATO flight training in Canada program until 2021.
With our new military investments, we will continue to deliver real results for Canadians.
