How about replacing the Cormorants with dedicated SAR versions of the Cyclones?The disaster began with PM Chretien when he cancelled the original project in 1993 for 28 Petrels/15 Chimos for $4.4 B and paying $500M(maybe just $197M) in cancellation fees. It actually began earlier when PM Campbell reduced the order from 35/15 for $5.8B.
It continued when the 15 scaled down CH-149 were purchased.
In 2004 the 28 CH-148 were purchased
So in my mind it's just one long never ending story, that is bound to get worse once we have to start paying for maintaining the Cyclone fleet as well
