Hi: I didn't see a thread on this (if there is one mods please combine).... Our world is becoming a very "scary" place (I especially fear for Alberta - Oil Country)...please stay vigilant! http://www.hindu.com/2006/06/05/stories/2006060504291600.htm TORONTO (CANADA): A terrorist plot, apparently inspired by Al-Qaeda, to bomb targets across Ontario has been broken up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). In a series of co-ordinated raids Canadian police arrested 17 individuals, including five youths, who they say were planning a series of attacks. All those involved were charged with terrorism offences. After the raids, which began on Friday night, officers revealed they had seized almost three tonnes of ammonium nitrate, the same chemical used in the Oklahoma City bombing in which 168 persons were killed in 1995. As sketchy details emerged of the arrests, a spokesman for the RCMP said it "had arrested a number of individuals who were planning to commit a series of terror attacks against targets here in southern Ontario." All the men arrested lived in Canada and most were Canadian citizens, officials said. "This group holds a real and serious intent," RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell said.
