It looks like Saab has declined to answer the Canadian government's "questionnaire". To put it quite simply, Saab is not convinced that the Gripen will be given a fair shake, and that the F-35 is still predestined "winner".
It's no real surprise. Even after declaring the program "reset", the Canadian government has kept close ties to the JSF program and continues to dump money into the program. This makes any auspices of impartiality completely unbelievable. Other manufacturers remain unconvinced as well, asking for no less than a full, open competition.
Until a full and open competition is declared, it still appears that the "fix is in" for the F-35.
