Still waiting

A new cost estimate for the F-35 apparently won’t be ready until the fall, in contradiction of point three of the Harper government’s seven-point plan to rectify the procurement.

It’s now been 42 days since I asked Julian Fantino’s office to respond to the auditor general’s suggestion that the defence department already had a 36-year lifecycle costing. Those questions were forwarded to the defence department. I’m still waiting to receive the department’s response.
