Federal officials running the country's multi-billion dollar shipbuilding program are refusing to say how badly off-track the schedule is for the delivery of new naval supply ships and the Canadian Coast Guard's planned heavy icebreaker — even though they've known since last fall.
A revised schedule has been presented to Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) by executives at Seaspan, one of two go-to shipyards for the federal government.
There's a reference to the new schedule in an information paper, obtained by CBC News under the access to information law, which analyzes anticipated production gaps at the two shipyards.
