OTTAWA (Reuters) - The Canadian government has suspended talks with Boeing Co (BA.N: Quote) over the planned purchase of Super Hornet jets as a stopgap measure, an official said on Thursday.

"We have a capability gap, we outlined a process, our partner in that process is not acting like a valued partner right now so we've suspended discussions with that partner," Steven MacKinnon, parliamentary secretary to Public Services and Procurement Minister Judy Foote, told reporters.
