Edmonton Teen Charged With Plotting To Make Us Think About All Those Great Restaurants Ordered To See Shrink

Teen facing terrorism charges ordered by Edmonton judge to undergo psychiatric evaluation

A teenager who allegedly planned to leave Canada to join the terrorist group Islamic State will undergo a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation.

Prosecutor Rob Reimer requested the evaluation at the 17-year-old’s court appearance Monday morning. Submissions to support the application for an evaluation are under a court-ordered publication ban, as is the youth’s identity because he is under the age of 18.

As with previous appearances, the youth said nothing as he appeared on a courtroom screen from the Edmonton Young Offender Centre.

    Islam is a mental illness. Now if only they can connect the dots.

      More of our taxpayer dollars to find out what is wrong with this teenager. If Islam was never let into Canada you have to wonder how much money would our country have saved? So you want our inept government to connect the dots? I am glad wishful thinking is still free.

    So, basically, citizens aren’t allowed to go to Syria or Iraq, unless approved of by the state.
    Shades of the USSR.
    Let them leave, FFS!

    I think the kid is perfectly sane. It’s officialdom that needs psychiatric help.

    Islam is a curse on the planet.
