Canadian ‘terror’ suspects: innocent unless proven guilty

“What have been reported in the press are alleged acts and not proven facts. Only a trial by the public courts system – and not the media – can determine the difference…. Canadians should bear in mind that this recent wave of ‘anti-terror’ arrests is not the first. Two years ago, as many as 26 Muslim men were arrested in Toronto in a sweep called ‘Project Thread’ that received widespread international attention and that, according to at least one government official, had uncovered ‘an Al-Qaeda sleeper cell’ in Canada. This statement was proved to be false.”
