Oh looky here.
The Liberals are going to get some new helicopters.
At the low, low cost of $5 Billion dollars.
This stupid helicopter deal has been THE thing that's driven me nuts about the Liberals ever since they came to power back, oh, 12 years or so ago.
I'd have to do a bit more digging, but I'm sure that we've already spent more money on this whole mess than it would have cost to just get the original choppers back in the day. We've had to pay off the company to break the contract back in the early nineties, there have been several crashes, probably a few deaths too, plus all of the attendant costs in maintenance.
