Mr. Speaker, let us see if we can follow this.
The Minister of National Defence says that the F-35 is the only plane that meets the mandatory requirements. His parliamentary secretary says it does not: it is a developmental project. The Associate Minister of National Defence says, yes, it does. But he is off looking for alternatives.
We know that the process has been rigged in favour of the F-35. My question is simply, how did they mess it up so badly?
