Mr. Speaker, it will not come as any surprise to the member for Wascana that I do not share the premise of his question.
Let us look at what the minister did. He tabled substantial documents before Parliament, as he is required to do. He has been fully open and transparent.
Let us look at a backgrounder on the website of the Department of National Defence dated July 8, 2009, which explains the whole project. Let us look at the MERX listing from April 11. It indicates very clearly a Leopard 2 conversion to an AEV, not transmission equipment.
The minister has been completely open and completely transparent on this file.
