Mr. Speaker, there is screw-up after screw-up at National Defence. On top of the F-35 scandal, now the Libya mission cost 700% more than the ministry reported at the end of the mission, and Canadians are actually being lied to about what the contracts are actually for, claiming transmission parts instead of whole armoured vehicles.
Audit and control functions across government are being chopped, the Auditor General himself by some 10%. Access to Information is clamped down.
Why is the government choosing to hide the deceit and incompetence instead of actually fixing it?
