Calls under surveillance related to bombing in Yellowknife that killed 9 people Senator Vernon White is defending the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's decision to listen to a journalist's phone conversations in 1992 in the aftermath of a deadly bomb attack in Yellowknife.

According to White, former assistant commissioner for information and identification with the RCMP, the phone-tapping was justified.

"It was a murder. Nine people were killed," he told Radio-Canada, highlighting the exceptional nature of the situation.

White was referring to the September 18, 1992 bombing at Giant Mine, in which over 40 kilograms of explosives 230 metres below ground killed nine men.
