B.C. Appeal Court says RCMP ‘manufactured’ terrorism plot against B.C. legislature

An undercover RCMP investigation of a couple accused of plotting to bomb the B.C. Legislature was a “travesty of justice” and facilitated the crime, says a unanimous ruling by B.C.'s Appeal Court that upheld a judge’s decision to stay terrorism charges even though a jury found the pair guilty.

The Appeal Court decision in the case of John Nuttall and Amanda Korody of Surrey, B.C., also urges Parliament to overhaul anti-terrorism sections of the Criminal Code, saying they are “unnecessarily complex and cumbersome," and need to be comprehensible, for juries in particular.
