Two arrests made in attempted terrorist plot in Quebec, Canada

The Canadian authorities have arrested two suspects in a terrorist plot in Quebec (via Hot Air):
Canadian police and intelligence agencies will announce later today they have thwarted a plot to carry out a major terrorist attack, arresting suspects in Ontario and Quebec, CBC News has learned.

Highly placed sources tell CBC News the alleged plotters have been under surveillance for more than a year in Quebec and southern Ontario.

The investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The arrests Monday morning were co-ordinated and executed by a special joint task force of RCMP and CSIS anti-terrorism units, combined with provincial and municipal police forces in Ontario and Quebec.
And towards the end of the Globe and Mail's report, they say:
Several Muslim community leaders were called by Mounties early Monday to drop what they were doing and come at 2:30 p.m. to the RCMP police station near Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
It doesn't surprise me that those terrorists could be jihadists. The Toronto Sun says that a terrorist plot on a train at Niagara River was thwarted, and explains why the FBI was involved in the investigation.
