FBI tip led RCMP to thwart possible terrorist act by Aaron Driver in Strathroy, Ont.
Police say it was an FBI tip early Wednesday that alerted them to the “imminent threat” posed by Aaron Driver, who was later killed in a confrontation in Strathroy, Ont.
RCMP Deputy Commissioner Mike Cabana says the tip included a video of Driver, 24, and a warning that he planned to detonate a homemade explosive device in an urban centre during morning or afternoon rush hour.
In the video, aired during a news conference in Ottawa, a masked Driver is seen railing against western “enemies of Islam” and warning that the only solution would be the “spilling of your blood.”
So Aaron Driver was under a Peace Bond and one assumes in some kind of regular contact with authorities but it took the FBI to let our security services know of his intentions.
Well I feel better now.
