FUNDING THE STEALTH DRAINS CANADIAN WEALTH

Pierre Paquette, and of course you too Gilles Douceppe!
Have you voted fair pensions for all of our wounded yet?
They’ll spend $29 Billion US Dollars on those fighting jets.
But continue to nickel and dime those new disabled vets.

The country is big and the fuel tanks are small.
Who will we be dog fighting with now, after all?
Let the Americans do Dog Fights in their F35 jets.
Let Canadians look after, their Afghan war vets.

Amend the NVC so that it makes some real sense.
Don’t give our wounded, nickels dimes and pence.
Give them the $29 Billion over the next thirty years.
Help stop the deep worry, the pain and the tears.

About those F35 aircrafts, those fast fighter Jets.
Lets cancel the contract say us guys from Quebec.
Give the $29 Billion Dollars to the VAC folks in PEI.
Give bigger pensions to each wounded girl and guy

Liberals Slam Bloc ‘Flip-Flop’ On Jets

OTTAWA – The Liberals are accusing the Bloc Quebecois of “flip-flopping” on their decision to support the purchase of F-35 fighter jets in the wake of a report by Canada’s budget watchdog that pegs the total cost at billions more than initially thought.

“Gilles Duceppe has finally seen the light – I just hope it isn’t too late for Quebec’s aerospace industry,” Liberal industry critic Marc Garneau said.

“Liberal MPs have argued all along that the Conservative numbers simply do not add up, which is why they breached Parliament’s privilege and refused to show us detailed cost figures for these stealth fighter jets.”

A report Thursday by Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page suggested the untendered deal would cost more than $29 billion US over 30 years.

The government has and continues to maintain that its figure – $16 billion over 20 years – is accurate.

Shortly after Page’s report came out, Duceppe said he was shocked and echoed the position of the Liberals that\ the deal should be cancelled
in favour of an open bid process.

The Bloc had supported the deal believing it would be good for Quebec’s aerospace industry.

On Friday, the Bloc’s Pierre Paquette admitted the party had supported the purchase up until the release of Thursday’s report.
