OTTAWA -- The Conservatives won't say if they are prepared to create no-fly zones over Quebec-run jails in order to prevent more inmate helicopter escapes.

The NDP attacked the government during question period Tuesday, alleging that the Conservatives ignored the Quebec government's request to protect provincial airspace after a March 2012 helicopter escape.

Fifteen months after the first daring escape, three men last Saturday were airlifted out of a provincial detention centre near Quebec City.
