Toronto 18 ringleader pleads guilty....
Gee, do you think he will serve any time???
One of the ringleaders of the so-called Toronto 18 terror group has pleaded guilty in the middle of his trial.
Fahim Ahmad, 25, was being tried along with Steven Chand and Asad Ansari on terrorism charges in the last of the trials associated with the group.
Justice Fletcher Dawson told the jury Monday that Ahmad pleaded guilty.
"You look out here this morning, members of the jury, you'll see Mr. Ahmad is no longer with us," said Dawson.
"Mr. Ahmad last week decided to change his plea to guilty."
Ahmad's plea has "no impact on the guilt or innocence of the two men who remain on trial," Dawson instructed the jury.
The jury heard earlier in the trial that Ahmad was the leader of a terror cell and held two training camps to assess his recruits' suitability.
Court was told Ahmad planned to attack Parliament, electrical grids and nuclear stations.
All three men were charged with participating in a terrorist group and Ahmad was also charged with instructing people to carry out activities for a terrorist group and a weapons offence.
Chand also faces a charge of counselling to commit fraud over $5,000 for the benefit of a terrorist group.
