Mr. Speaker, yet one more challenge for the government to rise to.
We also learned today that the minister's department has decided that DND's strategic investment plan is now a classified document. This 15-year previously public plan for spending on equipment is now a national security issue.
However, every procurement program in this department is now behind schedule or over budget: F-35s, close combat vehicles, search and rescue planes, submarines.
Why does the minister think it is better to stamp “secret” on these documents rather than just fixing the problems?
