Toronto Muslims held in alleged terrorism plot

17 people detained.

I don't know what to say about this, really. All I can hope for is a transparent process, though I expect that this is unlikely. We still know very little about the circumstances around the last arrest, even though it hit closer to home. And their "leads", if you can call them that, are so far out of the picture that it shows ineptitude on the part of the security officials.

If they can prove the guilt of the accused, then I commend their efforts. Canada is my home, and any threat to the country is a threat to me personally. I can see the Peace Tower out my apartment window; I look upon it with respect every day.

On the other hand, if nothing conclusive can be brought forward, then I can only pray that sanity prevails.

  1. It's really sad that new charges keep being brought forward on these 17 men. It seems to not be a very transparent process at all. And it's hard to keep it together, expecially for people who know them. We'll see.
