In 2016, BC Supreme Court Judge Catharine Bruce threw out a charge against John Nuttall and Amanda Korody, two recent converts to islam, for setting off a pressure cooker bomb on the lawn of the BC Legislature in 2013 saying they were incapable of such an act without the help of the RCMP.
The RCMP spent over $900,000 on overtime for more than 200 staff. They also dropped more than $90,000 on expenses like clothing, food and trips for Nuttall and Korody. Total expenditures came out to more than $1 million.

This record is composed of tapes and transcripts of conversations that tell the story of operations leading to an apprehended Islamic bombing plot on the grounds of the British Columbia Legislature in Victoria.
In her assessment of this record, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine Bruce concluded an appeal hearing by deciding that members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) had “entrapped” two recent Muslim converts in the enactment of a crime they could not have committed themselves. The episode unfolded during the period when Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, led the political party holding a majority of seats in Parliament….
