Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. member for her question and assure her that the Department of National Defence has consulted with the municipality and with first nations on environmental compliance. The Cyclone helicopter will meet civil aviation requirements for noise.
It does give me an opportunity to thank the men and women of 443 Squadron, some of them my old comrades, for their tremendous service flying the Sea King helicopter for our Pacific navy. After the decade of darkness I referred to earlier, the Cyclone is on the horizon, and fair winds and following seas are coming for the Pacific navy and our air force.
