Mr. Speaker, with all the fairy tales they have been telling, the Conservatives have confused even themselves. Just in the last 48 hours, a senior government official said an “options analysis is almost complete”. However, the Chief of Air Staff contradicts that. He does not know what options the government is looking at. He is even asking our old question, “What is plan B”?
According to a department missive sent yesterday, he misspoke. Now we have learned that the Department of National Defence has established a working group to look for alternatives.
Therefore, are you now looking for alternatives to the F-35, yes or no?
