Canada Charges Terror Suspects
Sunday, June 04, 2006
(SNN Toronto) Police have charged twelve adults and five youths with planning an "al-Queda inspired" attack. They described that amount of bomb making materials as enough for "three Oklahomas". The Mounties would not name any of the suspected bombing targets.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Canada had been targeted because of its way of life. Harper added, "Today, Canada's security and intelligence measures worked. Tomorrow…" Harper finished by waggling his hand back and forth and making a "nya" sound.
Over three tons of ammonium nitrate was seized. While this material can be used to make bombs. However, the group in question was Canadian and it could be possible that they were merely going to grow a lot of pot.
Police did not want to give away too much about the religiosity and ethnicity of the alleged terrorists. However, they did release the name "Steve". So if you know someone named Steve, there is a high likelihood they are a terrorist.
Some of the members of the group were not extremists, but straight criminals doing things that would only be considered a crime in Canada, like walking against a crowd, spitting in public and selling guns for money.
