December 17, 2015 3:51 pm

A Montreal teenager has become the first person in Canada to be convicted of trying to leave the country to participate in terrorist activities abroad.


The 16-year-old from Lachine was also found guilty Thursday of committing a crime in association with a terrorist organization.


The conviction for trying to leave Canada to participate in terrorist activities abroad was a first under new federal anti-terror laws passed in 2013.


Quebec Youth Court Judge Dominique Wilhelmy said the teenager’s parents likely saved their son’s life by reporting him to authorities.
