What’s Canada Buying? November 9, 2012

  • F-35 Tug o’ War  Latest messaging from the Minister of Public Works in the House of Commons this week  “Mr. Speaker, on this side of the House we are focused on what the Canadian Auditor General has to say. What he asked for was for that Department of National Defence table updated cost estimates for the F-35. We have gone a step further. We would like those to be independently validated, so we have hired a firm to do that. It is working on that. The work is progressing very well, and those numbers will be tabled in the House of Commons and made public ….  the reality is that the advice given to the government on issues and operational requirements does come from the air force. I do respect their advice, and I do think they are the experts on this matter. We will take their advice under consideration.      In terms of options, the member knows full well that the government will be examining all options to replace the CF-18.”
  • Wanted:  +300 ATV’s for various bases across Canada in two batches – here and here.
  • Wanted:  juice concentrate (and juice dispensers) for CFB Shilo – more on how much of what kind here.
