Hon. Paul Dick (Minister of Supply and Services):

Madam Speaker, unlike the hon. member, I do not spend my life looking around inside the courts and the judgments to find out what is going on and what he can muck-rake. I did not know of anything of that nature.

Yesterday my hon. friend, the minister, said that he would look into all aspects and report back to the House. He will do that. I spoke to him earlier today and he said he unfortunately would not be here but he will be reporting back to the House.

We have undertaken to do that. We have no problem in following that procedure.

Hon. Paul Dick (Minister of Supply and Services):

Madam Speaker, yesterday at page 19932 of Hansard the Minister of Public Works, who is not in the House, undertook to investigate this matter and get back to members.

He thanked the hon. member for bringing it to our attention yesterday. The Minister of Public Works will be back in the House next week to respond to his question.

Hon. Paul Dick (Minister of Supply and Services):

Madam Speaker, I thank the hon. member for putting that question.

I believe there were six or seven witnesses yesterday before the committee. Only one witness said that the Boeing Labrador helicopter would be anywhere near comparable to the EE1-101. As a matter of fact, outside in a scrum afterward he was asked by reporters: "Are you trying to tell us that the Labrador is as good as the EH-101?" He ignored the question. The fifth time it was asked, he said: "No, it is not".

We cannot compare a 40-year old aircraft which does not even have the airframe built anywhere in the world any more because it is so old to a brand new aircraft. We cannot say that it is equal. It just is not equal.

The fact is it would cost us $600 million to refurbish those in a way that we need to refurbish them in this country as was expressed yesterday. He is talking in American dollars of a refurbishment that they did a few years ago for the Americans who are using those helicopters for a second-line helicopter. They do not put on de-icing equipment.

I am sorry, we live in Canada. We cannot take those helicopters off the ground 38 per cent of the time now because we do not have de-icing equipment on them and because of the winds. They cannot be fitted with certifiable de-icing equipment. We need a better helicopter to do search and rescue in this country. It will cost about the same amount.

Hon. Paul Dick (Minister of Supply and Services):

Madam Speaker, I am not saying that equality necessarily means fairness. I am saying that we will try to make sure it is fair. Sometimes those things are different. We will take a look at the problem which has been raised and will get back to the hon. member as soon as possible.
