Mr. Speaker, 442 Squadron is flying 50-year-old Buffalo search and rescue planes. Only two other countries use these planes. The Kenyans sold theirs and the Brazilians are selling parts to us but there are not enough propellors to go around.
The government promised to replace the aging fixed-wing aircraft. Now it will be waiting six more years.
Our SAR techs are doing their best to provide safety for British Columbians. Will the government give them the modern equipment they need to do their job today?
