Most young Canadian ISIS recruits targeted online: Jason Kenney

Most young Canadian ISIS recruits are being targeted online and are often “social misfits” who sometimes come from troubled families, Defence Minister Jason Kenney says.

Kenney made the comments on CTV’s Question Period, days after the RCMP announced that it had arrested, and later released, 10 Montreal teens suspected of wanting to joining the Islamic State group in the Middle East.

Investigators made the arrests after they were tipped off by a concerned parent. Though the teens were released after questioning, their passports were confiscated.
