Police did say they believed the two were “inspired by al-Qaeda ideology” and were “self-radicalized” without support from terror groups abroad. RCMP Assistant Commissioner Wayne Rideout told reporters that during the five-month investigation, the suspects discussed a variety of targets and plans.

Their landlord, Shanti Thaman, said they appeared to subsist on social assistance. Last week, they asked for an extension on their $650-per-month rent, the landlord said. A glimpse inside the apartment revealed a messy living space, littered with bottles of methadone and other prescription drugs. A television set appeared to have been used for target practice.
