Time to ship out Harper

It looks like yet another military procurement that has proven to be more talk and less action where Ottawa is concerned, says letter writer

To the Editor,

Back in October 2011, BC shipbuilders were chosen for an $8-billion federal contract to design and construct Canadian Navy and Coast Guard vessels, while Nova Scotia shipyards got a contract more than three times that size to build more naval vessels.

The premiers concerned were ecstatic when the announcements were made.

Almost four years later with very little visible progress, federal government documents have come to light stating the naval shipbuilding program is in jeopardy.

It looks like yet another military procurement that has proven to be more talk and less action where Ottawa is concerned.

Yet the Conservative Party touts itself as the only one to trust in the upcoming election?

Bernie Smith,
