Mr. Speaker, the minister has a poor track record when it comes to giving clear answers.
He told the House that no money was spent on the F-35, yet $335 million has been spent. Somehow or other, there is a freeze on this non-existent spending.
He told Parliament the F-35s would cost $75 million per plane. His own officials testified at committee today that these planes will actually cost a lot more.
DND says they are full speed ahead on F-35 procurement, but Public Works is renaming the secretariat. What is really going on here?
