Mr. Speaker, our government will ensure that our women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces have the appropriate equipment they need to do their jobs.
We want to thank the Auditor General for his important work and recommendations. I encourage the member to read the entire report on this. The report confirms what we have always known, that the Harper Conservatives mismanaged the fighter jet file and misled Canadians for over a decade.
The report confirmed that the capability gap exists, which started under the Conservatives. Unlike the Harper Conservatives, we will not compromise our ability to meet our NATO and NORAD commitments.
