In investigators' offices, an intricate graph plotting the links between the 17 men and teens charged with being members of a homegrown terrorist cell covers at least one wall. And still, says a source, it is difficult to find a common denominator.
RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell said yesterday the suspects are all Canadian residents and the majority are citizens. "They represent the broad strata of our community. Some are students, some are employed, some are unemployed," he said.
"Some are actually recruited. Going out and looking for marginalized youth, if we can call it that, and other ones it's common association within a community."
Maybe this list of names will help. But since this is the Toronto Star we're talking about, it probably won't.
