Parliamentary budget office digging into Super Hornet fighter jet costs
from Times Colonist
Six years after ripping into the Conservative government's cost estimates for F-35 stealth fighters, Parliament's budgetary watchdog says it is digging into the Liberal plan to purchase "interim" Super Hornet jets. The Liberal government announced it planned to buy 18 Super Hornets as a stop-gap until a competition to find a replacement for the air force's aging fleet of CF-18 fighter jets could be held in five years. Ministers have admitted that they have an idea how much the Super Hornets will cost and that it will be more expensive in the long run for taxpayers, but they have refused to say by how much.
