Mr. Speaker, again on accountability. The Prime Minister promised in 2006, 2008 and again in 2011 to put a 650 member rapid reaction battalion at CFB Goose Bay plus a UAV squadron. There was also a pledge to create a territorial defence battalion of 100 regular forces and 400 reservists in St. John's. Both of these promises have been broken. There is nothing for Goose Bay and the Minister of National Defence says that a territorial battalion group will be set up in 10 cities, from Vancouver to Halifax.
Why can the government not be trusted to keep its promises? Why does the government not keep its commitments to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador?
