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

Witness: Henry Jensen

Henry Jensen (former Deputy Commissioner of Operations for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)) continues to testify before the Commission under direct examination by Commission Counsel Anil Kapoor. Mr. Kapoor asks Mr. Jensen about intelligence gathering, intelligence-led policing, and the sharing of intelligence among various federal, provincial, and municipal agencies. The witness discusses the relationship between the Vancouver Integrated Intelligence Unit (VIIU) and the Combined Forces Law Enforcement Unit (CLEU). Mr. Kapoor also asks Mr. Jensen about threat assessments, the work of various policing and intelligence organizations and bureaus, and intelligence gathering by the RCMP and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in the Canadian Sikh community in the early 1980s. Jacques Shore (Counsel for the Air India Victims’ Families Association) cross-examines Mr. Jensen, asking about tensions between the RCMP and CSIS following the creation of CSIS. In the course of responding to Mr. Shore’s questions, Mr. Jensen reveals a personal connection to the bombing of Air India flight 182. Loretta Colton, Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada, briefly cross-examines Mr. Jensen.
