Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – May 15, 2007 (Part 3 of 3)


Commission of Inquiry into the Investigation of the Bombing of Air India Flight 182

Witness: Gary Clarke

The Commission hears testimony from Gary Clarke (a former superintendent with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the officer in charge of the security and policing detail at Toronto Pearson International Airport from 1981 to 1984). Under direct examination by Commission Counsel Anil Kapoor, Mr. Clarke describes security provisions at Toronto Pearson International Airport in the early 1980s, the relationship between RCMP headquarters and airport policing in Toronto, the setting of different airport security levels, various threats to Indian interests and to Air India specifically in the early 1980s, his own role in responding to such threats, and his knowledge of other official responses to such threats. Norman Boxall, Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association, cross-examines Mr. Clarke. Mr. Boxall asks about Mr. Clarke’s understanding of the meaning of various airport threat levels and the procedures in place in the early 1980s for responding to various threat levels. Carol McCall (Counsel for Air India) and Charleen Brenzall (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada) cross-examine Mr. Clarke. Mr. Kapoor asks Mr. Clarke some brief follow-up questions.
