Eurocopter Canada hopes to replace Canada's aging Sea Kings helicopters
from The Montreal Gazette
"The worst procurement in the history of Canada," former defence minister Peter MacKay called it last year. And then some. First launched 21 years ago, the disastrous process to replace Canada's aging — and dangerous — fleet of Sea Kings maritime helicopters has become a bad joke in Canadian aviation circles. The 28-chopper deal was awarded, cancelled — at the cost to taxpayers of $500 million — re-awarded, and may now be cancelled again — and then re-awarded.
