Pakistani man accused of plotting terror attacks ordered out of Canada

TORONTO — A Pakistani man accused of plotting terror attacks in Toronto has been ordered out of Canada.

Jahanzeb Malik will be kept in immigration custody pending deportation in a few weeks.

Malik’s lawyer told an Immigration and Refugee Board detention hearing today his client won’t fight removal.

The government had argued the permanent resident is inadmissible to Canada as a security threat.

The board previously heard how an undercover RCMP officer befriended Malik, who professed support for terror groups.

The officer testified that Malik, 33, talked about blowing up the U.S. consulate and financial buildings in Toronto.
