    Default Canada announces it thwarted "major terrorist plot"

    Reports say this was a plot to blow up a commuter train at the Niagra Falls border. This was al-Qaida supported.

    "Canada 'thwarts major terror plot'
    Canada's authorities are expected to announce they have foiled a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, media reports say.

    The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation says the alleged plotters were arrested on Monday morning after being under surveillance for more than a year.

    It reports that the arrests took place in Ontario and Quebec.

    Police are due to give more details shortly. The plot was not linked to the Boston Marathon bombings, reports say.

    The investigation involved a cross-border co-operation involving America's FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, according to the CBC..."

    Scary fucking day up here. Sounds like they planned on blowing up a train that was traveling from toronto to new york. Good police work and it sounds like a lot of co-operation from the public.

    Do we know yet whether we were watching them only or if they were talking to someone they thought was helping them but was really an agent?

    Not sure. They are being very quiet on details so far.

    I work in Toronto; and its pretty fucking scary when you hear about it happening in YOUR town. Thanks to the RCMP, local police, military and FBI.

    To the terrorists; fuck you. Canada is (IMHO) the best place in the world, with the nicest people in the world. An attack on us would have been another shining example to why you're fucking hated.

    I hate to agree with you on that one, but you are right.
    I have family in Ajax ON. Sometimes I send my daughter to visit by train if we all can't make it.

    the only real positive thing behind this story (well besides the arrest happening before they could kill a bunch of people) was that the tip to the RCMP apparently came from inside the Muslim community in Toronto. Someone got wind of what these nutjobs were up to and did the right thing and went to the cops.

    But this isn't the first time one of these things has been broken up, this is the 3rd or 4th such plot in the past couple of years. Fortunately these things have gotten picked off by the cops long before they can do anything so far but there's gonna come a point where they don't. The two guys in this case aren't even Canadian citizens - makes you wonder what the fuck our immigration department is doing.

    Dude... Not cool. I'm all for patriotic gung-ho chest thumping but given that your "dumbfuck neighbours to the south" had a fatal bombing in one of their cities barely 10 days ago, I find your cheap shot to be in very poor taste.

    Did you not read the line about the cooperation from the American agencies?

    Terrorist-style violence in Mexico is a daily occurrence. While we share a lot of the blame for it, proximity isn't a great reason to not criticize Mexico.

    Or am I missing something...?
