Jenkins submitted his report, titled “Canada First: Leveraging Defence Procurement Through Key Industrial Capabilities,” on Tuesday. It is commonly criticized that the Conservative government recently embattled among itself for months over the plans to purchase F-35 fighter jets, when the Parliamentary Budget Officer, Kevin Page, and Auditor General, Michael Ferguson, had an overgrown argument over the government’s estimated cost. Ultimately the Conservatives had to give up the plan of buying F-35s, after the report of auditor general last spring, and reinitiated the process of finding a replacement of CF-18. Additionally, the panel also recommended that Canada shall attempt to keep its defence contracts with the business for firms in the industry. Jenkins mentioned that since Canada is currently focused on acquiring new military equipments, including trucks, helicopters, ships and fighter jets, it has an opening to demand benefits for key industries.
