The controversial floor combatant undertaking has confronted delays and important will increase in value as the value tag has climbed from an authentic $14-billion
The price of Canada’s proposed fleet of warships has jumped to an estimated $77 billion, in response to a brand new report from the parliamentary funds officer.
The report, launched Wednesday by Yves Giroux, outlined how the value tag of the Canadian Floor Combatant fleet elevated by $7.3 billion in lower than two years.
The controversial undertaking, which might see Canada buy 15 Sort 26 warships from Lockheed Martin and BAE, has already confronted delays and important value will increase — and a contract has not but been signed.
The vessels are supposed to exchange the present Halifax-class frigate fleet and are to be constructed for the Royal Canadian Navy at Irving Shipbuilding on the east coast.
