BTW Did Al-Queda say why they wanted to attack Canada because the logic escapes me.

A) The IRA, KKK, FARC and various Aztlan guerrila groups are all terrorist groups, correct?
B) All three have free access to America, correct?

ira? free access? maybe but we dont support them.
Indirectly, you support them. Private citizens and corporatiosn donate funds. Arms are bought and smuggled over.
kkk? obviously because racist americans are the only members but we dont support them and the fbi used dirty tactics to dismantle them for decades and it worked fairly well and they rarely do much today.
as I recall, tehre have been at least two spereate incidents involving domestic terrorism in the last six months- a cyanide bomb found, as well as enough ammunition and explosives to level a town. Yeah, thems some fine not-support. How did things get THAT far?
farc? what? we donate weapons, billions of dollars to the military in colombia, have special ops, mercerneries, and other forces in colombia helping them quell farc and farc kidnaps americans quite often, we patrol outside our borders to track farc drug smuggling aircraft, boats etc, farc is an enemy we have been helping fight for years.
Mercenaries are not in the employ of the US military. And if all this stuff is working, then how does all that black tar heroin and blwo get in the country? And direct military invention in Columbian affairs ending after Pablo took one to the head.
you used bad examples
"He also said Canada was hated because of its military presence in Afghanistan and its treatment of the Khadr family, notably Abdul Karim, the teen who set off a public outcry when he returned to Toronto for medical treatment after he was wounded in a shootout in Pakistan that left his al-Qaeda father dead"
The above along with the normal reason of being an infidel country seems to be the reasoning.

I dont see a big enough target IN Canada to get the bang for the buck that the terrorists are looking for.
But Canada as a staging ground, or resource base for terrorism is more likely.
- Canada's foreign policy in matters of international conflicts has always been to act within a U.N.'s workframe. Its predictable to think that in the probability of a terrorist attack against Canada, the U.N. (and another bunch of countries) would be dragged into the matter. It probably wouldn't be something as radical as a military intervention, but it could be something sensibly damageable to the terrorists activities.
