Canada has asked Boeing (BA), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and three other companies to provide information about their fighter jets as the country looks to replace its aging fleet of Boeing CF-18 Hornets. The government had said in 2010 that it would buy Lockheed's F-35 planes, but spiraling costs have prompted it to revisit the process. The other contenders are EADS, Saab and Dassault.
