Exclamation VIA Rail Bombing Plot Thwarted!

Alleged terror plot targeting Via train thwarted


Canadian police say they have arrested two men and thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack on a Via passenger train in the Greater Toronto Area.

In a press conference that followed an exclusive report by CBC's Greg Weston, police named the two accused as Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, of Montreal, and Raed Jaser, 35, from Toronto. They have been charged with conspiracy to carry out a terrorist attack and "conspiring to murder persons unknown for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group."

The two men arrested are not Canadian citizens, police said Monday, but would not provide any details about their nationalities.

The RCMP accused the two men of conspiring to commit an "al-Qaeda-supported" attack.

Police said the two accused were getting "direction and guidance" from al-Qaeda elements in Iran. There was no information to suggest the attacks were state sponsored, police said.

Should Canadians be worried about this incident:

1) not at all?
2) somewhat?
3) a lot?

Since the plot was uncovered and those involved arrested, I opt for number one. I'd say good work to the police on this one.

I would say I'm not at all worried as well. I have no interest in fear-mongering.

I'll go a step further and say good work on the muslim community member who gave the tip that led to this plot being foiled in the first place!

there should be concern, but it does show that our current system is working well.

so are you against the S7 bill that is being pushed through parliament?

that is what my "fear mongering" was alluding to. reintrouduced after the Boston bombing, and now fuelled by this latest plot.

doesn't make sense to me to have everyone's rights eroded because of potential threats that have been thwarted in this country with our existing laws.

Unless I misread it, all it does is allow people to sue terrorists or governments who direct them. Even Amnesty International is on board with that.
