I've Got A Question

From today's Star:
The Vancouver Sun article doesn't cite sources, but says Bains's father-in-law, Darshan Singh Saini, "is on the RCMP's potential list of witnesses at investigative hearings designed to advance the Air India probe." (emphasis mine)
More anonymous source smears. I guess it worked so well against Maher Arar, they thought, "What the hell". The question is for the media. At long last, will you do the decent thing and name names? Or barring that, will you stop using anonymous sources unless you can verify the information with someone who will go on the record?

Update: From today's Globe:
Although the RCMP has said it wants to conduct investigative hearings, the names of potential witnesses have not been made known, and even Mr. Rae does not know who they are.

"There's no reason for any of those lists to ever become public."
If the list of names is kept by the RCMP and is not public, then the chain of custody of that list is probably quite small. Shouldn't somebody ask who had access to that list?
