Canadian authorities said Saturday they had foiled plans for a homegrown terrorist attack with the arrests of 17 men and teenagers, who were "inspired by al-Qaida" and had obtained three times the amount of explosives used in the deadly Oklahoma City bombing. The FBI in Washington said the Canadian suspects may have had "limited contact" with two men recently arrested on terrorism charges in the state of Georgia. "These individuals were allegedly intent on committing acts of terrorism against their own country and their own people," Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement. "As we have said on many occasions, Canada is not immune to the threat of terrorism."
