  1. The Toronto 18 was a contrived police and security PR operation from Day 1.

    Most of the 'terrorists' have pled guilty in return for release. Another was sentenced to a hefty prison term after his confession. This probably as a 'hook' to make sure he testifies against the remaining 2 terrorists in the hope of getting a conviction without having to expose the role police and security forces played in enabling the plot.

    Canadians couldn't feel much safer after this farce.
