SURREY, B.C. A man and a woman have been charged in a terror plot targeting Canada Day at the B.C. legislature in Victoria, RCMP said Tuesday.
John Stewart Nuttall, 41, and Amanda Marie Korody, 30, both of Surrey, have each been charged with knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, and possession of an explosive substance.
Both are Canadian-born citizens.
Police would not say if they are linked to terror groups, but that the attacks were inspired by al-Qaida ideology.
The plot stretches back five months, police said.
A photo of inert explosive devices shown at the police conference seem to show pressure cookers, much like those used at the Boston Marathon bombing.
They are both in custody and were to appear in Surrey provincial court Tuesday morning.
In April, police charged two men with plotting to derail a Toronto-area passenger train in an operation they say was backed by al-Qaida elements in Iran. U.S. authorities later announced visa fraud charges against a Tunisian man they said was linked to that plot.
Police also say Canadians took part in an attack by militants on a gas plant in Algeria in January.
CSIS has long expressed concern that disgruntled and radicalized Canadians could attack targets at home and abroad.
Canadian resident Ahmed Ressam, an Algerian citizen, tried to cross into the United States from British Columbia on a mission to blow up Los Angeles airport in 2000 and is serving 37 years in a U.S. prison.
Rideout said the RCMP used a variety of techniques to "monitor and control" the accused throughout their conspiracy, though he said he couldn't provide specifics now that the case is before the courts.
Translated from Newspeak: these two were patsies goaded, financed, and lead by State intelligence services the whole time and would have never posed a threat to anyone without that support. The only difference between this and what is going on in Syria is that the CIA is letting their Al Qaeda terrorists off the leash. Both cases have the same goal though, trick the rubes into giving up their liberty for (false) security.
Joining the worldwide domination movement cleverly disguised as a religion turns one into a bearded savage.
OK,let's review...in addition to two attempts on the WTC,the Boston Marathon and other events in the US we have Britain,at least two major events,Spain->at least one major event,Australia->at least one major event(Bali) and,IIRC,there was recent event in Canada (perhaps not major).Why couldn't there be a major event...or potential major event...in Canada,a relatively small country that,like Australia,has taken an active role in Afghanistan?
Uncle Scam illegally arms and finances Al Qaeda to cut the heads off of Christian priests in Syria. Do you thinks they care about few civilians here if they get in way of their geo-political agenda?
Because in every case you mentioned the alleged perps were either, under the direct control of Western intelligence agencies, like Emad Salem of the 1993 WTC bombing, directly related to Western intelligence, like Uncle Ruslan of the Boston Bombing, or under constant surveillance of Western intelligence, like Mohammad Atta.
I wonder what their muslim names are?
Meanwhile, this story doesn’t get comments because Canadian police stopped the terrorists before they killed.
