Mr. Speaker, none of that is true, as the hon. member himself knows. Professional public servants have looked at the Parliamentary Budget Officer's numbers and they reject his methodology.
The reality is that we will be buying these aircraft at the best price. They are the best aircraft, in fact, the only aircraft available.
We will take no lessons from the member opposite and his party, which gutted the Canadian Forces during its time in office, which cancelled important helicopter programs and is prepared to do the same thing and put men and women in jeopardy with underfunded equipment.
That is what we get with the Liberal Party.
