May 7, 1980

Hon. Judd Buchanan (London West):

Madam Speaker, I have a question for the minister responsible for amateur sport. Recently, the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League cut Scott Mallender, an outstanding Canadian quarterback from the University of Windsor, without so much as a try-out.

Bearing in mind, also, the recent decision of the Ontario Human Rights Commission as far as Jamie Bone was concerned-they upheld Jamie Bone's contention under the Canadian Football League's designated rule-could the minister tell us whether he is planning to take any action to see what

Hon. Judd Buchanan (London West):

Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Minister of National Defence. There is growing concern that we are not being given full and complete information on the proposed F-18A fighter aircraft. Has the minister seen the report of the past week which was prepared by the General Accounting Office in the United States government and which states that the F-18A program is in difficult straits due to major cost overruns, deficient performance, severely delayed delivery dates and, of extreme importance, deliberate concealment of information needed to redress these difficulties?

Mr. Buchanan:

Mr. Speaker, I am happy to hear that the Minister of National Defence is also on the receiving list for the reports. The reports seem to indicate that they are having considerable difficulty in keeping the F-16 in the air, and are having even more difficulty in getting the F-18A off the ground. As the minister indicated, the report pointed out that there are structural faults with this aircraft which may well entail some major redesign. There are problems with late delivery of the sub-systems, and many other difficulties.

In light of these difficulties, will the minister indicate to this House that any decision relating to this aircraft and to the choice between the two aircraft will be delayed until there has been a full and complete investigation of these allegations, and the concerns that have been expressed in this House have been allayed?

Hon. Judd Buchanan (London West):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of State for Science and Technology. At committee, the National Defence officials indicated that the cost of the new fighter aircraft in 1982 dollars would be approximately $3.5 billion. What guarantees can the minister give Canadians that such a massive expenditure of taxpayers' funds will help to achieve the level of research and development that his government has stated is so essential to the economic development of Canada in the eighties?

Mr. Buchanan:

Mr. Speaker, all available information indicates that there will not be one ounce of Canadian technology in these fighter aircraft. Can the minister indicate how much indigenous, high-Canadian technology will be in the aircraft and how much will be simply paint-by-numbers or work-to-drawings type of assembly?
