Hi, I'm Steven Vikash Chand, alias Abdul Shakur chand1x

Age: 25

Address: Treverton Drive, Toronto, Ontario

• Notice the "alias"? I'm a convert to Islam who attended Salaheddin Islamic Centre two to three times a week. In fact, I moved into a basement suite near my mosque about six months before I was busted. I regularly distributed reading material about Islam at local public schools, encouraging youths to accept God.

• I was born to a Hindu family from Sri Lanka

• I had just started a job at a nearby shawarma shop at the time of my arrest.

• I've been charged with wanting to behead the Canadian Prime Minister. (Yep. It was me. I'm the one!) Nutty, huh? Where do I get ideas like this? I don't know.

• All of us are charged with participating or contributing to a terrorist group

•I was was a Canadian soldier for four years as a member of the Royal Regiment of Canada -- an infantry unit based in Toronto, and the second largest reserve regiment of the Canadian Forces. (I wasn't always a restaurant worker!), I had joined the reserves in June 2000 and served up until April 2004. But Cmdr. Denise Laviolette said I wasn't a well-honed soldier.I completed few of the qualifications required for infantry soldiers and was absent for much of my time in uniform.
