Mr. Linklater, I have nothing for you, but I just want to say thank you for all the help you've given our constituents when they've run into very difficult Phoenix problems.
I think for Mr. Fillion, I just want to discuss the AOPS. The first five cost about $400 million a ship averaged out. The sixth one, we hear, is going to be $812 million. We asked the Minister of Defence in committee of the whole what the seventh and eighth would cost, and he wasn't able to provide information. The minister was here last week and said they would be less expensive than the $400 million. I'm trying to figure out why the sixth one is more than double the cost, and why the seventh and eighth are going to be cheaper.

I understand that. To reiterate my question, Kevin McCoy testified in the Senate that the $400 million would be for about the third ship, and the costs would then come down, with the first ship costing around $500 million and the cost then coming down. You're now saying that the sixth ship would cost $400 million, when Kevin McCoy in the Senate committee testified that it would be less expensive. Why is it $400 million?

Right.

There was $150 million, again, to smooth out the production gap, but we gave them an extra ship to smooth out the production gap. Now we're giving them two more ships that further fill out the production gap, so we're on the hook for three extra ships and an extra $150 million. Why was there the first $150 million if we gave them an extra ship and two extra ships, and why is there the continuing production gap?

What was the general cause of the production gap? Was it just this delay in getting the decision made on the CSC? This is quite significant, having to throw in three extra ships and $150 million on top of that.

I want to stick with the shipbuilding. I saw today that we pulled the polar icebreaker from Seaspan. Is that correct?

But we had discussions with other.... I recognize that all that information is obviously desperately needed, especially considering what the Chinese and the Russians are doing up north. Are we in talks with any other shipbuilders in Canada or outside of Canada right now for a polar icebreaker?

In active discussion?

It's a serious question. Originally, it was supposed to be, I think, 2019 and then it got put back to 2023. We're probably looking, to be honest, at 2030 if it was left with Seaspan. We have to act so....

Do you know when we will have a new announcement on what is going on with the polar icebreaker?
