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

Commission Lead Counsel Mark J. Freiman recounts earlier testimony by Brian Simpson concerning his work as a member of the cleaning staff at Toronto Pearson International Airport in June 1985 and his alleged ability to access Air India flight 182 without being questioned by security personnel. Mr. Freiman also recalls cross-examination by Loretta Colton (Counsel for the Attorney General of Canada) that called into question the accuracy of Mr. Simpson’s testimony on the basis of statements made by various airport employees at the time. Mr. Freiman proceeds to refer to a number of documents in an effort to provide an accurate portrayal of the events in question. Ms. Colton makes brief remarks in response. Carol McCall, Counsel for Air India, also makes brief remarks.
