FAQ 2b. Do we have tapes of all of the calls between Kalia and Grewal?
It is pretty obvious that we have only a fraction of all the messages between the two. If you look at Grewal's blackberry log, SK made 9 calls to Grewal before 8 pm on the 16th, but the first three calls in the tape/transcript are before the log starts. In addition this log contains only the calls made to Grewal's Blackberry. Did Grewal ever return a call to Kalia? Not according to our records. Perhaps he returned calls using a land line.
Also, if you go to the transcript of the Sunday night call in the Kalia transcript (here), the first line of the transcript is
SK- Minister (Ujjal Dosanjh) called and asked me if I have spoken to you (GG). I said I have talked to him and explained our discussion.Clearly this is not the first time Kalia and Grewal have talked about this. (Aside for later--is this even the beginning of this call? No 'hello', etc.?)
Also, the Blackberry log shows roughly two dozen calls made in all, about half of which got through. We have to assume, then, that of these dozen calls, we have only six (and these may be incomplete). There were also calls initiated by Grewal to Kalia. Over at Maritime Liberal is quoted aCBC interview in which Kalia shows his call display logs for the ten days leading up to the exchanges that Grewal has released for the 15th and 16th of May, which shows that there are another ten calls or so that have not been released.
The six calls released among the Grewal recordings, then, represent only a fraction of those made between Grewal and Kalia.
