BRAMPTON, Ont. - The trial of the last three people accused in the Toronto 18 terror plot is set to get underway Monday in a Brampton, Ont., courtroom.
Fahim Ahmad, Asad Ansari and Steven Chand are all charged with participating in a terrorist group.
Ahmad is also charged with instructing people to carry out activities for a terrorist group and a weapons offence.
Chand also faces a charge of committing fraud over $5,000 for the benefit of a terrorist group.
