A look at terrorist attacks in Canada

StartFragmentOct. 20, 2014: A man who had been investigated for jihadist ties uses his car to run over two members of the Canadian military, killing one and injuring the other, in a Quebec parking lot. Canadian law enforcement had been monitoring Martin Couture-Rouleau over fears he's become radicalized by Islamist groups. He was shot and killed by police after a high-speed chase.EndFragment

April 22, 2013: Canadian intelligence services arrest two men allegedly trained by al-Qaeda operatives in Iran and charge them with plotting to derail a New York City-bound passenger train in the greater Toronto area.

June 2, 2006: Authorities arrest 18 people who were allegedly inspired by al-Qaeda for plotting a widespread terror act in the nation's capital. The plot, planned by the so-called "Toronto 18," involved storming the Parliament building, taking over a national TV broadcasting station, seizing dozens of hostages and beheading the prime minister.

Sept. 3, 1985: A bomb explodes in Montreal's Central Station, a commuter train station, during a Labor Day rush, killing three French tourists and injuring dozens more. Thomas Brigham, an American war veteran, is later convicted of the bombing after authorities said he was angered over an upcoming visit by Pope John Paul II.

June 23, 1985: Air India Flight 182 departs Montreal's Mirabel International Airport bound for Delhi and explodes midair, killing 329 people, including 268 Canadians. Law enforcement officials claimed the attacks were carried out by Sikh extremists living in western Canada as revenge on India, but only one person ever serves jail time for his involvement.

May 18, 1984: A former Canadian Army corporal storms into Quebec's provincial parliament building and opens fire with a machine gun, killing three government workers and injuring 13 others. Denis Lortie, who sat on the Speaker's chair and fired at cowering workers, screamed "The government now in power is going to be destroyed." He was talked down and later convicted of second-degree murder.

Oct. 5, 1970: The first of two high-ranking government officials are kidnapped in Montreal by members of the Quebec Liberation Front, setting off a frantic few weeks of negotiations, a call-up of federal troops and the first peace-time use of the national War Measures Act. The body of Pierre Laporte, the Minister of Labor for Quebec, was later found in the trunk of a car while James Cross, a British trade commissioner in Montreal, was released. Some of the kidnappers were flown to Cuba for asylum and others were arrested and convicted.

Feb. 13, 1969: Members of the Quebec Liberation Front, nationalists looking for formal recognition of Ottawa, set off a powerful bomb that rips through the Montreal Stock Exchange, injuring 27 people.
