Mr. Speaker, perhaps I will have better luck with another topic.
In a speech on the U.S. Senate floor this week, Senator John McCain called the F-35 program “a scandal and a tragedy”. He said:
In fact, flight testing sufficient to demonstrate the full mission systems and weapons delivery capability of the F-35 aircraft has not even started.
Canada is the last country still clinging to cost estimates made 10 years ago, and clinging to talking points that no one believes.
As another simple question, does the minister agree or disagree with Senator McCain's comments?
