Public Accounts committee  As we've stated, we have a project under way. Until the chief of defence staff has been briefed and I've been briefed on the cost, the timelines and the expectations of the project, and the chief of defence staff has been able to give military advice to the minister, we won't be

Public Accounts committee  We do, and certainly we have a renewed emphasis on growing the Canadian Armed Forces as a result of “Strong, Secure, Engaged”. Up until recently, the armed forces have been downsizing. We're now having to reverse that trend and grow the Canadian Armed Forces at a time when unemp

Public Accounts committee  When the audit was ongoing we hadn't completed that analysis. The Auditor General reports on what we've done and what we haven't done. We're never not analyzing the improvement to fleets. They're constantly going through refits, through weapons changes, sensor changes, defensiv

December 3rd, 2018Committee meeting

Jody Thomas

Public Accounts committee  Thank you very much for the question. The budget is not an issue. “Strong, Secure, Engaged” has fully budgeted for the number of pilots we need, the number of technicians we need and the amount of money required to run the Royal Canadian Air Force. That's not our issue at this t

Jody Thomas

Public Accounts committee  Thank you for the question. You point out that our aircraft are aging. There is absolutely no doubt, which is why our focus is on keeping the air force operational until the future fighter capability project is complete. It's a project where we've met every milestone.
