Quebec funds school of jihadis

The Quebec government is offering a $400,000 grant to boost resources at a Montreal junior college that has been the subject of media reports concerning radicalization.

Higher Education Minister Helene David says the amount will be used in part to hire additional personnel at College de Maisonneuve as part of a pilot project to enhance harmonious living.

A statement says the project’s goal is to help the school’s communities live together.

Early last year, several of the college’s students were among the group of young Montrealers arrested on suspicion of wanting to join jihadist groups overseas.
