Terror plot targeted Toronto's Union Station, public safety minister reveals
Revelation marks 1st time Union Station was confirmed as Aaron Driver's target
Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says Toronto's downtown Union Station was the target of a foiled terrorism plot in 2016.
Goodale made the revelation in Regina at an event where new RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki was announced.
Goodale also asked those in attendance to think of the officers who stopped suspected terrorist Aaron Driver "before he could attack Union Station in Toronto."
Driver died in 2016 during an altercation with RCMP officers in Strathroy, Ont., after they were tipped to a martyrdom video made by someone planning an attack using homemade explosive devices.
At the time, RCMP said the attack was imminent, targeting an urban centre during rush hour.
