Looks like Canadian authorities foiled an imminent attack

No country is immune from terrorism. The United States is not alone in facing this vile threat. Canada, it seems, is taking it just as seriously.

Toronto Globe & Mail: Several people have been arrested in the Toronto area on terrorism-related charges, the RCMP announced Friday night.

The arrests were made Friday in co-operation with the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, Cpl. Michele Paradis, an RCMP spokeswoman, said Friday night.

Police have arrested several people in the Toronto region for allegedly plotting an attack with explosives, The Canadian Press reports.

“It is very serious,” said a source who asked not to be named. “These people had plans.”

While the intended target is unclear, the plan was to detonate an explosive device in Ontario, the source said.

“That's the tool of choice for anybody who wants to cause damage.”

For all those who are quick to blame the West for the world's ills, what did Canada do to "deserve" this?

Update: CNN reports that 17 men, "inspired by Al Qaeda", have been arrested.

"This group took steps to acquire three tons of ammonium nitrate and other components necessary to create explosive devices,"
