1, 2, 3, 4--What are these numbers for?

Four transcripts are posted at Grewal’s website:
  • 1Conversation-TimMurphy.pdf
  • 2Conversation-TimMurphy-UjjalDosanjh-GurmantGrewal.pdf
  • 3Telconversations-SudeshKalia-GurmantGrewal.pdf
  • 4Telconversations-TimMurphy-Gurmant-Grewal-UjjalDosanjh-Gurmant Grewal.pdf
What is the point of the numbering? It is not chronological. The chronological order of the tapes seems to be #3, #2, #4, #1. (I think. But some of the telephone calls in #4 might be after #1. Thoughts?)

I suspect that the numbering was assigned to the tapes as they were being transcribed. So the numbering tells us in what order the Conservatives dealt with the tapes. Is that important? I have no idea.

buckets,

We may never know. It seems the CPC is now claiming that that is all of the tapes:

So for 11 days they say there are 4 hours and now there are 1 hour and 15 minutes? Something smells fishy to me...

Mike, from the article you linked:
"[Harper] says he's convinced Grewal has handed over all of the recordings and believes his MP's version of events."

I wonder if we can find another version of Harper's statement that is more clear. What he said there could be interpreted to mean that Grewal handed over all the tapes _to the RCMP_. Obviously not all the tapes were handed over _to the public_, the fact that the start and end of clips were omitted cleanly shows that this is not the entirety of the recordings.

If Grewal is now claiming that these are the whole tapes, he is clearly lying. And Harper is doing himself a disservice if he pretends to agree with Grewal's version of events.
