Canadian minister says "misfits" planned Valentine’s Day massacre

A group of “murderous misfits” planned to massacre as many people as possible in a Valentine’s Day shooting spree that police foiled after an anonymous tipoff, Canada’s justice minister said on Saturday. Police arrested three people, including an American woman, before the attack in the eastern city of Halifax could take place. A fourth man linked to the plot was found dead in a house in Halifax, police said. “Based on what we know so far, it would have been devastating, mass casualties would have been a real possibility,” Justice Minister Peter MacKay told reporters. “The attack does not appear to have been culturally motivated, therefore not linked to terrorism.”
