Can anyone up in Canada brief us to any new developments?

Update as requested:

The youngest one (16) has been denied bail once and is trying again, the second oldest (18) has been granted strict bail on unpublished conditions. One was denied bail today, and there are some more hearings tomorrow.

There are no details from the hearing because they put publication bans on them.

There is one interesting turn of events. It turns out that CSIS had placed a man in the group.

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.

Mole went undercover to protect Canada, he says

The publication ban doesn't affect this story because Mubin Shaikh went public with it.

Now that this information has been released there's some speculation on how much of an influence Shaikh had on the rest of the group. The lawyers have already started using the word entrapment, and this is what one of them had to say about it.

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."
