Accused bombers John Nuttall and Amanda Korody who are on trial for terrorism-related charges were fearful the police were on to them as they planned an attack.

The pair are accused of planning to set off bombs at the B.C. legislature on Canada Day 2013.

On Tuesday, the court heard how the pair went shopping for components to build their alleged explosive device.

A hidden camera captured their conversations while an undercover RCMP officer drove them around Surrey six days before an alleged plan to bomb the legislature in Victoria.

The outing included stops at hardware stores, an array of big box outlets and a handful of plumbing and heating shops

At one point, Nuttall expresses his belief that a man who followed him from Rona to Value Village might be an undercover cop. 

Later, he complains about a Muslim woman who wouldn't talk to him in one of the stores. 

"I get all this prejudice because I'm white," Nuttall says. He then criticizes the woman for being a bad Muslim because she wore lipstick. 

At another point in the video, Nuttall tells the undercover officer in the car about a clerk who said to him, "A pipe with screw-on caps? What are you building a bomb?" Nuttall says he told him 'No, my dad's building a house."
