Oh. Noes. Any kid that’s a bit troubled (that’s all of them, people)Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â could be recruited as a terrorist. A ‘Domestic Terrorist’, at that. They walk among us! Dear God, they’re everywhere! More of our rights must be curbed for the purpose of security! (Propaganda award of the month goes to Isabel Teotonio and the Star for helping carry the ‘domestic terrorist’ ball a bit further down the field with this article. Meanwhile, anyone who actually reads the papers knows full well that this kid was fingered and recruited by CSIS, which also set up the supposed terrorist boot camp in Northern Ontario. Don’t let your view of reality be distorted by this kind of media charade.

Saad Khalid was only 16 when he was dealt a devastating blow.
He returned home to find paramedics trying to revive his mother, who had been found submerged in the bathtub. He sank to his knees in despair and buried his face in his hands. She was gone.
The once-gregarious teen became reticent. He withdrew from sports, tended to his younger siblings and took on more household chores.
He and his brothers and sisters were discouraged from speaking about his mother’s struggles with depression and her death. Instead, they were told to pray to God.
