A prominent member of Toronto's Muslim community who worked as a police agent to infiltrate an alleged terror cell says he was moved to go undercover to protect Canada.
Mubin Shaikh went public about his role as a paid informant after the Toronto Star broke the story of his involvement in the probe into an alleged "homegrown" terrorist group.
The 30-year-old said his decision to break his silence came upon the urging of the Muslim community, who widely knew his role in the arrests of 17 terrorism suspects last month.

The police didn’t have a case against the accused, so they relied on an informant to "set everything up," said Galati.
"They have to fabricate it," Galati said, re-acting to Shaikh’s claim he befriended the group’s alleged ringleader, Fahim Ahmad, last October.
"I’ve seen some other disgusting so-called terrorist cases, but the stench of this one is starting to exude even before we get into court."
