GUARDING THE HOME FRONT

We should all be pleased that we all live freely here
Except for a wee bit of Canadian sleeper cell fear
Terrorist perps know the rules
And they treat us like fools

They cannot be named before they’ve turned eighteen?
And what to the rest of us does that really all mean?
Their lawyers are good –stalling until they are twenty
Using the young offenders act in this land of plenty

They plan to kill civilians with explosives and guns
They are found guilty, but those are laughable puns
Because they are guilty under the Young Offenders Act
So out on the streets they will soon be returned back

Another ten adults stand accused in this terrorist plot
And they will all get off too as is likely as not
We have Librano human rights Laws and bleeding heart rules
The terrorists know that and they treat us like fools

Sleeper cell planners teach each suicidal radical young man
To kill home front infidels and our troops in Afghanistan
Thank God for our CSIS and our home front cops and RCMP
And for crime stoppers paid rewards and unpaid poets like me

A free press gets the word out and we spread it around
To folks in Toronto, and Ottawa and in Vancouver Town
Our terrorists should be sentenced harshly by His Honour Judge Sproat
Sentencing them to years in the pen as they stand at the bar and gloat

TORONTO MAN GUILTY IN TERROR PLOT

CanWest News Service: September 26, 2008

BRAMPTON, Ont. — A 20-year-old Toronto man has been found guilty of participating in a home-grown terror cell that was plotting to kill civilians with guns and explosives.

The evidence that a terrorist group existed was “overwhelming,” Justice John Sproat said yesterday before convicting the young man.

“[The youth] was aware of the political, religious and ideological motivations of the group and its terrorist intentions,” he said, reading from a 94-page written decision.

It has been more than two years since the accused was arrested along with 17 others in an anti-terrorism sweep across the Greater Toronto area. Charged with attending a terrorist training camp and stealing supplies for the group, he was the first of the so-called ‘Toronto 18’ to face trial and his hearing was also considered the first test of the prosecution’s case.

In his decision, Sproat described a group of conspirators led by two people – one devoted to building bombs and testing a remote detonator, the other focused on holding training camps and getting weapons to launch an attack.

Ten adults remain accused in the terror plot.
