While it's wonderful that Cougar will have this capability; it speaks volumes about the federal governments priorities. Coastguard and SAR should be first and foremost a responsibility of the national government. A 20-30 minute wheels up response should be available at all times. This is much more important than any museum or cultural issue or any overseas operation. KUDOs to Cougar and shame on our federal government

It is good to see an MP who actually stands up for an issue as important as offshore search and rescue. Might not like the NDP but I have no regrets about voting for Cleary. Best move Mount Pearl ever made was showing the former MP the door!
