Mr. Bernard Bigras (Rosemont, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of National Defence.
The government is planning to buy 15 search and rescue helicopters. We have learned that Augusta Westland's Cormorant model has apparently been selected by the government.
How can the government justify choosing the same type of helicopter as the one in the contract it cancelled at great expense in 1993?
