Not surprising at all. Canada, Ontario in particular, is a haven for muslim extremists. There are even two known terrorist training camps operating in Ontario, one near ThunderBay and the other near Braceridge. Reports say that the group had over three tonnes of explosives, three times that used in the Oklahoma bombings, and a number of other devices such as cell phones rigged up as remote detonaters. Scary stuff.

Al-Qaida busts in T.O
At least 8 in 'terror' cell arrested as police foil possible attack on TTC
By VIVIAN SONG AND BRETT CLARKSON, TORONTO SUN

In a stunning development yesterday, police made a sweeping terrorist bust within the GTA and expected to make several more arrests throughout the night.

"The RCMP, CSIS and the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team arrested individuals throughout the GTA today in relation to terrorist-related offences," confirmed RCMP spokesman Corp. Michele Paradis.

As of about 9 p.m. last night, Paradis also added "there are ongoing arrests."

Though unconfirmed, sources have told the Sun police arrested a possible home-grown al-Qaeda terrorist cell operating in Toronto that had planned to bomb the subway as early as Monday.

Just three days ago, Sun columnist Joe Warmington wrote about two men spotted filming the subway system on May 23 at Keele station, which raised alarm bells with Toronto Police and CSIS.

But sources also tell the Sun that the RCMP "planted" that story with the media, though reasons remain unclear.

Police had been watching several alleged terrorist camps since 2004 -- one of which is reported to be in the Muskokas near Bracebridge and another near Thunder Bay, a police source told Warmington late last night.

"Recently some officers followed two men who left the camp near Thunder Bay and headed to Toronto," said the source.

Another Sun source said there was a similar "terrorist" camp near Barry's Bay -- within an hour's drive of several Ontario nuclear operations.

Other source also tell the Sun the arrested individuals were amassing weapons.

"This is huge, this is massive."

Sources cited by the Canadian Press corroborate this claim, saying the suspects were arrested in the Toronto area for allegedly "plotting an attack with explosives."

"It is very serious," said a source who asked not to be named. "These people had plans."

While the targets were unclear, the aim was to detonate an explosive device in Ontario, they said.

"That's the tool of choice for anybody who wants to cause damage."

The enforcement team also includes GTA police forces and the department of justice.

Officials remained tight-lipped about the nature of the arrests, refusing to reveal the number of people arrested, who was arrested, the nature of the terrorist activities, when or where the arrests were made, fuelling conflicting reports.

Some news outlets discounted allegations the subway or the CN Tower were targets, and claimed the terrorists involved are not directly afilliated with al-Qaeda, but were inspired by them.

Others pegged the number of arrested at eight, and said the investigation involved around a hundred officers.

In November of 2002, al-Qaeda singled out six countries for supporting "the White House gang of butchers." Among them: Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Australia and Canada. Terrorists bombed London's subway system last July, killing 52 people.

Meanwhile, a quiet Mississauga neighbourhood got a shocking visit from ETF officers who stormed the new subdivision and busted down the door of a Rosehurst Dr. home at about 6:30 p.m. One neighbour described the arrested man as heavyset, in his mid-50s with black hair and a beard, who appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent.

At 7:15 p.m. last night, a highly unusual scene on the Gardiner Expressway raised the suspicions of Sun photo editor Rick VanSickle when he saw an ambulance flanked by two police cars driving east toward the city. VanSickle was between Islington and Royal York at the time and also saw a nondescript car and unmarked silver minivan with police lights parked at the side of the road.

"Normally when I see an ambulance there is no police escort. That's what struck me," he said.

The RCMP is expected to make some details available today at a news conference at the Toronto Congress Centre on Dixon Rd., also an unusual venue for such an announcement.

At the Durham Regional Police Station at Hwy. 2 and Brock Rd., where it was speculated the arrested are being detained, at least three police officers armed with machineguns patrolled the building, which was sealed off with yellow tape.

Scores of police cars, officers and dogs also kept vigil over the the heavily guarded building, keeping media outlets outside.

A convoy of SUVs, unmarked cars and minivans parked at the side of the building also appeared to hold some people.

The idea that some people want to maim and kill me and my family because we are not one of them is repulsive to me.I don't believe in the death penalty,but that may be the only way of protecting my and your family from them!

Kinda disproves the general concensus that terrorists won't hurt us because we're all nice and harmless doesn't it. People in this country need to wake up and realize that it's all about hatred for our lifestyle and beliefs. It's not about one man's terrorist being another's freedom fighter crap.

Some more interesting info just came to light this morning. Apparently, CSIS and the RCMP had been monitoring the group for some time. When they began looking to acquire the fertilizer to make the explosives, the police used undercover agents to conduct a sting operation, controlling the selling, distributing, and even delivering of some of the explosive ingredients they were seeking. Sounds like they should have caught them red handed right? Nope, not according to their defense lawyers and some of Canada's more left leaning media . According to these individuals, the group of 17 were unfairly entrapped because of their religious affiliation and are now being used a pawns to gain support on Canada's involvment in G W Bush's war on terror.

As it stands, the Ontario Islamic community, which represents over 60% of the Canadian muslim popoulation, is now distancing themselves from the acts saying that they were in no way "acts of faith' but rather "act of politics". As such, they are calling for the government to take action to lessen the sense of alienation felt by Canadian muslims and to work towards encouraging a greater tolerance of their faith. So let me see if I can understand; extremist members of YOUR faith try to set off three tonnes of explosives and kill unknown numbers of people and it is OUR (Non - Muslims) fault for not being more tolerant? I don't think so...

So it appears the buildings targetted by the extremists were the Canadian Peace Tower in Ottawa, and the CN Tower and Stock Exchange in Toronto. Intelligence officials are saying today that had the Islamic group successfully carried out their attacks we likely would have suffered casualties that would have exceeded those seen in 9-11. More arrests are supposed to take place later this week.

Anyone else see the irony in members of the so-called religion of peace trying to blow up the Peace Tower?

Once again, kudos to the RCMP and CSIS for stopping these crazies.

Well, it didn't take long for liberal minded Canadians to take up the cause of the accused. Got the love it when the lefties use racial and sexually derogatory terms to insult the "radical nazi conservatives".

I see the link no longer works, too bad as I would have liked to see what it said. I can see it now, that our government will bend over backwards to accomodate the Muslims who say that the "radicals" are not part of the main stream idiology. Can't risk offending them.

Ammonium nitrate that is plant food, maybe they just have a lot of guavas trees that need a boost.
Remote detonators because they expect fast growth.
