Mr. Speaker, certainly there is no denying that it is a real tragedy that young Burton Winters lost his life.
However, let us be clear: the Canadian Forces respond each and every time as quickly as possible. We have the largest geographic area in the world in terms of our search and rescue responsibility. We saw just last week, off the coast of Nova Scotia, heroic efforts made by members of our SAR tech teams. We have seen this repeatedly throughout the country and throughout our SAR history.
Each and every time, they do their very best to save lives and they are very successful at it.
