    La Garde côtière canadienne et la Nation Heiltsuk annoncent un projet pilote de 5 millions de dollars pour appuyer l’établissement de l’équipe d’intervention d’urgence maritime Heiltsuk

    Bella Bella, Colombie-Britannique - Les communautés côtières autochtones entretiennent des liens avec les océans du Canada depuis plusieurs générations. Dans le cadre de la prochaine phase du Plan de protection des océans du Canada, le gouvernement du Canada collabore avec les Premières Nations pour améliorer davantage la façon dont nous intervenons en cas d'urgence maritime. Aujourd'hui, la ministre des Pêches, des Océans et de la Garde côtière canadienne, l'honorable Joyce Murray, et la Nation Heiltsuk ont annoncé le lancement du projet pilote de l'Équipe d'intervention d'urgence maritime Heiltsuk, qui vise à améliorer la sécurité maritime sur la côte centrale de la Colombie-Britannique. Dans le cadre du Plan de protection des océans, la Garde côtière canadienne fournit plus de 5 millions de dollars pour lancer immédiatement un projet pilote visant à appuyer la mise sur pied de l'Équipe d'intervention d'urgence maritime Heiltsuk. Cette équipe sera intégrée au système fédéral de préparation et d'intervention maritimes en tant qu'intervenant tiers en cas d'incidents de pollution marine. Le projet comprendra la mobilisation des membres de la collectivité, des exercices et de la formation sur l'eau, l'achat d'équipement, et l'élaboration de stratégies d'intervention sur le territoire des Heiltsuk. Il s'agit de l'une des nombreuses collaborations entre la Garde côtière canadienne et la Nation Heiltsuk. Le gouvernement du Canada et la Nation Heiltsuk continuent de travailler ensemble pour améliorer le rôle de la Nation dans l'intervention environnementale maritime, afin de fournir une capacité d'intervention d'urgence sur les côtes de la Colombie-Britannique. S'appuyant sur plusieurs années de discussions collaboratives, un protocole d'entente a été signé en mars 2021, officialisant un engagement entre la Nation et le gouvernement du Canada à améliorer la capacité communautaire d'intervention en cas de déversement d'hydrocarbures, y compris la mise sur pied de l'équipe d'intervention d'urgence maritime Heiltsuk. Le Plan de protection des océans est une réussite canadienne. Lorsque les peuples autochtones, l'industrie, les collectivités, le milieu universitaire et le gouvernement travaillent ensemble pour protéger notre environnement, faire croître notre économie, et soutenir de bons emplois partout au pays, nous obtenons des résultats concrets. Un Plan de protection des océans renouvelé et élargi préservera la santé de nos océans et de nos côtes, fera progresser la réconciliation, et b'tira un avenir propre pour nos enfants et nos petits-enfants. https://www.canada.ca/fr/garde-cotiere-canadienne/nouvelles/2022/10/la-garde-cotiere-canadienne-et-la-nation-heiltsuk-annoncent-un-projet-pilote-de-5-millions-de-dollars-pour-appuyer-letablissement-de-lequipe-dinter.html

    French firm Dassault pulls out of fighter-jet competition: Sources

    By Lee Berthiaume The long effort to replace Canada's aging fighter jets took another surprise twist on Tuesday, as multiple sources revealed that French fighter-jet maker Dassault is pulling out of the multibillion-dollar competition. The decision comes just over a week after the federal government published the military's requirements for a replacement for Canada's CF-18s as well as a draft process by which a winning supplier will be chosen. Dassault had repeatedly pitched its Rafale aircraft to Canada over the years as successive governments in Ottawa have wrestled with selecting a new fighter jet. Dassault's pitch included significant promises, including that it would assemble the planes in Canada. But sources tell The Canadian Press that Dassault's decision to withdraw was related to the fact France is not a member of the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing network, which counts the U.S., Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada as members. The five members have very specific requirements for how their equipment works together. The French government, which had been closely working with Dassault as the most recent iteration of Canada's fighter-replacement program has inched along over the past year, was preparing to notify Ottawa of the company's withdrawal. The move leaves four companies — U.S. aerospace giants Lockheed Martin and Boeing, European competitor Airbus and Swedish firm Saab — competing for the $19-billion contract to replace Canada's 76 CF-18s with 88 new fighters. A contract isn't expected to be awarded until 2021 or 2022, with delivery of the first new aircraft slated for 2025. In the meantime, the government is planning to upgrade its CF-18s and buy 25 used fighters from Australia as a stopgap. Dassault faced several significant challenges in meeting Canada's requirements for a new fighter, said defence analyst David Perry of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute, and while they weren't insurmountable, they would have cost time and money. Those challenges included meeting those Five-Eyes intelligence-sharing requirements, which Perry said put Dassault at a distinct disadvantage in the competition when compared to Lockheed Martin, Boeing and, to a certain degree, Airbus. "For any of the non-American companies, solving the Five-Eyes interoperability issues is going to be challenging," he said, noting that the U.S. in particular is very sensitive about data-sharing. "And it costs companies a lot of money to mount and pursue bids. So if they think at this point in time that it's not a realistic prospect, then pulling out is pretty understandable." That could explain why Dassault never established a strong presence in Canada during the many years when it was trying to sell the Rafale as a replacement for the CF-18, he added. The CF-18s are about 35 years old. Canada's attempts to buy a new fighter jet have dragged on for nearly a decade after the previous Conservative government announced in 2010 that Canada would buy 65 F-35s without a competition, with the first to be delivered in 2015. But the Tories pushed the reset button in 2012 after the auditor general raised questions about the program and National Defence revealed the jets would cost $46 billion over their lifetimes. After campaigning on a promise not to buy the F-35s, the Trudeau Liberals announced in November 2016 they would take their time with a competition to replace the CF-18s, and buy 18 "interim" Boeing Super Hornets without a competition because Canada needed more fighter jets badly. But then Boeing's trade dispute with Canadian rival Bombardier saw the Liberals scrap their plan to buy Super Hornets and instead begin talks to buy 18 used fighter jets from Australia. A contract for those used planes is expected in the coming weeks. The formal competition to replace the CF-18s is scheduled to begin next spring. https://www.nationalobserver.com/2018/11/07/news/french-firm-dassault-pulls-out-fighter-jet-competition-sources
