Mr. Speaker, it is nice to see the member bring such a class act to the House prior to Christmas.
Let us listen to what Claude Lajeunesse of the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada had to say about the production of 3,000 to 5,000 aircraft. He said, “This amount represents more than $12 billion in opportunities on the partner's fleet...”. The association went on to say, “We urge members of Parliament to support the future of our aerospace industry and the 150,000 direct, indirect...jobs it generates”.
I do not know why the member from Montreal is opposed to his local aerospace industry and the Canadian Forces' interests.
