Mr. Speaker, the Minister of National Defence is having yet another challenging week. Back in October he told the House that the all-up costs of the mission in Libya would be $50 million. Today we learned that the mission in Libya actually cost $350 million. That is seven times more than the defence minister said it would cost back in October.
What is it this time? Is the government so incompetent that it still cannot get its numbers straight or was it misleading Canadians yet again?
