Canada Martin Couture-Rouleau

Investigated for radicalization

Jun 2013

Couture-Rouleau is investigated by Mounties after Facebook posts indicate that he is becoming increasingly radicalized. His user name for the account (now inactive) is Ahmad LeConverti (Ahmad the Converted). Posts include propaganda videos and other materials admiring jihad, including a video featuring the logo for ISIS. Federal police spokesman Supt. Martine Fontaine:

There was no indication then of his intentions. On the contrary, he seemed open to the idea of maybe taking measures to change his ways. We couldn’t arrest someone for having radical thoughts. It’s not a crime in Canada.
