Inquiries on CPAC - The Air India Inquiry – October 24, 2007 (Part 1 of 3)

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

Witnesses: Alphonse MacNeil, Greg Browning

Alphonse MacNeil (Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)) and Greg Browning testify as a panel under direct examination by Commission Counsel Brian Gover. Mr. MacNeil describes the RCMP’s operations with respect to airport policing. He is asked about a recommendation by the Senate Standing Committee on National Security and Defence that oversight of civil aviation security be transferred from Transport Canada to Public Safety Canada and be performed by the RCMP. The witnesses discuss a range of issues related to aviation security and policing, including Canada’s use of Aircraft Protective Officers (APOs, known as “sky marshals” in the United States). They describe the APO program and speak in detail about the training and deployment of APOs. Raj Anand (Counsel for Lata Pada and other victims’ families) cross-examines the witnesses.
