Discussing Justice John Major Commission's statement, (A cascading series of errors contributed to our police and security forces failing to stop the bombing); Roger Nair, chairman of SAHRA, stated at the round table. "While we need to look at where we went wrong in the communication between RCMP and the Canadian Intelligence agency, CSIS. It is very important, while legislating or regulating these agencies modus operandi, that a perfect balance is reached between the two. Where important information, such as the Kanishka bombing case, when innocent lives are at stake, takes precedence over the day-to-day protocol."
