Collège de Maisonneuve suspends Adil Charkaoui courses
Sources say one student who took his courses is linked to six people who left Montreal to join Islamic State

Montreal’s Collège de Maisonneuve CEGEP has abruptly broken a contract to rent classroom space to Adil Charkaoui.
Sources tell CBC that one of the people who took his courses is linked to a group of six students suspected of joining jihadists in Syria.
On Thursday the school said it was suspending the contract after it found out a video was circulated among members of the school that was described as “promoting values that are different from ours.”
Collège de Maisonneuve had agreed to rent four classrooms to teach Arabic and Qu’ran studies, as well as two sports courts, to Charkaoui’s Ecole des compagnons.
Collège de Rosement also suspended its contract on Thursday with the school, which is associated with the Centre communautaire islamique de l’est de Montréal.
The break between Charkaoui and Collège de Maisonneuve happened the same day it was learned that six young Quebecers are believed to have joined the ranks of the Islamic State in Syria.
