Dim Wits on Parliament Hill

“Only Liberals would sell off our Chinook helicopters before a replacement, which was supposed to be the EH-101 helicopter, was in place,” Gallant said in the Commons and highlighted in a news release sent out Friday to journalists. “Without the strategic lift helicopters cancelled by the Liberals, soldiers died unnecessarily on the bomb-laden roads of Afghanistan.”
One problem with that statement. It was Brian Mulroney’s Conservative government that sold off Canada’s Chinooks to the Dutch. The false claim that it was the Liberals who sold the Chinooks has been repeated over the years by a number of Conservatives, including Chris Alexander and Peter MacKay.
Not one to let facts get in the way, Gallant continued.

Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant misfires again
