Mr. Speaker, it is amazing that the Minister of National Defence can actually get out of his seat.
The KPMG report will say that the costs of the F-35 are far closer to $40 billion than $15 billion, which is what the Prime Minister and the Minister of National Defence spun during the election. The Conservative government staunchly maintained that the F-35 was the only fifth generation plane available. For five years, the Liberal Party has been asking for an open, fair and transparent competition.
The Minister of National Defence has had multiple occasions today to stand up and do the honourable thing and resign. Instead, we got PS gibberish.
Will the Prime Minister do the right thing and put this minister out of his misery and fire him?
