VANCOUVER - The trial for a husband and wife accused of plotting to bomb the B.C. legislature on Canada Day heard they were worried their plan would be hampered if they ran out of methadone.

John Nuttall relayed that concern in a video recorded in late June 2013 during an undercover operation.

The jury has already heard that Nuttall and his wife Amanda Korody were on methadone therapy to treat drug addiction.

Nuttall tells an undercover officer in the recording that he needs the medication to prevent him from becoming sick, adding he's been weaning himself down to lower doses in preparation for the attack.

Nuttall and Korody also discuss an escape plan, with Korody suggesting she should wear a disguise and a wig to help with their getaway.

The undercover officer promises to make them new passports so they can flee the country, prompting Nuttall to become excited and declare that he hates Canada.
