OTTAWA - The inquiry into the 1985 Air India bombing concludes authorities should have known that Flight 182 was a likely terrorist target.
A long-awaited report released today blames a "cascading series of errors" by government, RCMP and CSIS for the failure to prevent the disaster.
Former Supreme Court justice John Major says agencies were not prepared for the threat of terror attacks in 1985 — and holes in the country's security systems still need plugging.
His report calls for ramped-up powers for the national security adviser to oversee communication between agencies and settle disputes.
The bombing killed 329 people, mostly Canadians of Indian origin.
Major spent four years investigating the matter.
