From The Star:
A group of Canadian teenagers and young men in their 20s, accused by police of being members of a suspected homegrown terrorist cell, will appear in court this morning to face accusations that they plotted to attack Canadian targets, the Toronto Star has learned.
Kudos to the cops if true. But as the article points out, there are legitimate grounds for skepticism here:
Then there was Project Thread, a 2003 joint immigration-RCMP case touted as the dismantling of an Al Qaeda cell, but ending in a routine immigration case that sent Pakistani students home branded terrorists.
If I remember correctly, this was the case where one of the Pakistani students was taking flying lessons out of Buttonville(?) and flying rather close to the Darlington nuclear facility. Turned out that everyone taking lessons out of that airport flew past the facility.
