Mr. Speaker, yesterday we learned that the Treasury Board was brought in to take over supervising the Department of National Defence.
Only one in five projects has come in on time and on budget. The only thing they can do without going over budget is buy paper and paper clips. For everything else, they need someone else to be in charge.
If the department cannot manage the budgets for 80% of its projects, how can it be expected to keep its promises about shipbuilding and materiel for our troops?
