Kinnear calls the allegation unconfirmed and slander, and TTC Chair Giambrone deferred comment until June 18th, when the report will be made public.

The Toronto terror case just gets more and more bizarre by the day. Latest testimony details the planned use of pretty blonde Caucasian women (but sometimes crackheads too) to scam banks, to fund the group, to get guns. Billiant plan, eh?
