Rodney Wallis (an international civil aviation security consultant), Peter St. John (University of Manitoba), Jean Barrette (Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA)), and Jim Marriott (Transport Canada) continue to testify as a panel before the Commission. Commission Counsel Brian Gover conducts examination, with questions focusing on comparisons between the bombing of Air India flight 182 and the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

They are also asked about changes in aviation security and screening procedures following the terrorist attacks in the United States in September 2001.
