Mr. Speaker, it has now been two months since 14-year-old Burton Winters went missing, and the contradictions from the government keep on multiplying.
A report from Major-General Vance states:
It should be noted that the 444 Sqn Griffons in Goose Bay do not have a mandate to maintain a SAR readiness posture...nor do they have a mandate to maintain a “Ready 12” response time.
However, the Canadian Forces website states that their secondary role is to maintain a 12-hour search and rescue standby.
Which is it? When will Canadians get clear answers about the state of our search and rescue system?
