Mr. Speaker, it seems the government is outsourcing diligence.
The Conservatives like projects where spending is out of control because it reminds them of their own deficit. The Pentagon has realized that the cost of the F-35 has skyrocketed. It revoked Lockheed Martin's failing cost control system. What do the Conservatives do? They want to hand over a blank cheque for the biggest purchase in Canadian military history.
When will the Conservatives do the right thing, have an open and transparent competition in Canada and respect taxpayers' money?
