Mr. Chair, let me ask the minister this direct question. Is the seven step process a review of the decision that was taken with respect to the purchase of one aircraft, which is the F-35, or is the seven step process an opportunity for others to come forward with respect to a competition and for the government to review once again the fundamental question of whether the F-35 should be the plane that we acquire. Which is it?
