In a first for Canada, Calgary police will launch a terrorism intervention program Tuesday morning aimed at pulling youth away from radicalization.
“We really are trying to focus on the behaviours that cause someone to be involved in an extremist view,” Insp. Mike Bossley said in an exclusive interview.

Calgary police are the first Canadian force to roll out such a mentorship strategy, which British police have followed for a decade.
