Canadian jihadist killed before he could prepare attack

The Canadian authorities have killed a terrorist who associated with ISIS before he could've carried out a more serious attack:
A Canadian man previously banned from associating with Islamic State extremists prepared a martyrdom video and was about to commit a terrorist attack but was killed after he detonated his explosive device in a taxi and was shot at by officers who say they thwarted the suicide bomb plot after being tipped off by the FBI, police said Thursday.

The suspect planned to carry out a suicide bombing in a public area in an urban center during rush hour, Deputy Royal Canadian Police Commander Mike Cabana said. He identified the suspect as Aaron Driver, 24, originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commander Jennifer Strachan said Driver was intercepted by police as he entered a taxi with a backpack and said Driver detonated an explosive device, injuring himself and the taxi driver, before police shot at him. It was unclear whether Driver died as a result of the shrapnel or a police bullet.

After being tipped off by the FBI, police said Driver was quickly identified as the person in the so- called martyrdom video. Police say he planned an attack within 72 hours.

"It was a race against time,"
Cabana said.
And fortunate that in the end, he failed to commit the abomination he was planning. But look at how today, Canada's got homegrown terrorists on their turf, who are already making the great white north a dangerous place. So long as even they refuse to recognize the root causes, this'll only continue.
