MP Randall Garrison credits police agencies after attempted terrorist attack

MP for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca pleased with the co-operative work done by police agencies to foil terrorist plot

Randall Garrison, MP for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca is pleased with the co-operative work done by police agencies that worked together to foil a terrorism plot.

Two Surrey residents are accused of planting pressure cooker bombs outside the B.C. legislature on Canada Day.

“Like B.C. residents and Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast, I was deeply dismayed to learn of a plot involving explosive devices at the BC Legislature on Canada Day,” Garrison said in a statement thanking the RCMP, Integrated National Security Enforcement teams, and law enforcement personnel at the federal, provincial, municipal levels.

B.C. RCMP arrested John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody in Abbotsford at 2 p.m. Monday afternoon after a five-month investigation that began in February.

“Their professionalism thwarted this despicable attempt to cause death, injury and terror among those celebrating the founding of our country yesterday,” Garrison said. “All Canadians can take pride in their work.”

An attempted terrorist attack using homemade bombs placed around the B.C. legislature was apparently an effort to do maximum damage as thousands gathered for Canada Day ceremonies, Premier Christy Clark said Tuesday.
