Terrorists turn to web to fund travel

MONTREAL – Some Canadians, intent on joining jihadi fighters in Iraq and Syria but low on funds, have taken to the web to raise cash.

The turn to crowdsourcing online has netted potential terrorists as much as $10,000 each. It’s a worrying trend, according to Michael Peirce, a deputy director at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS).

Peirce recently raised the issue while testifying before the Senate’s standing committee on national security and defence.
