In a recent article posted by GlobalNews.ca, research showed that post 9/11, approximately 50 people were charged with terrorist activity in Canada. Half of those arrests lead to convictions. A notable number of these individuals were minors.
Currently, terrorism charges lead directly to criminal charges, and the full range of consequences under criminal legislation. However, there is a movement to allow young offenders charged with terrorism to be afforded the penalties offered in the Youth Criminal Justice Act instead.
