According to the CBC:

Driver was shot and killed by police after he detonated the device outside his sister’s home in the town, 35 kilometres west of London. RCMP were responding to a tip from the FBI about an imminent terror threat involving Driver.

The force says an independent review of the investigation by Crown prosecutors has upheld the probe’s conclusion.

Driver, reportedly an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria sympathizer, was planning an attack in a public place, police said.
