The allegations were made in investigation summaries delivered to defense attorneys for the suspects on Tuesday.
According to the reports, some of the suspects planned to storm the Parliament building and hold hostages including the prime minister unless Canada agreed to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and release Muslim prisoners.
