‘Threat to critical infrastructure, police and the public’: Alberta man arrested in extremism investigation

DM

Mounties allege an Edmonton-area man posed an imminent threat to the public after espousing “extremist” views online, and have charged him with a slew of weapons offences, including possession of explosives and police gear. In a news release Thursday, police said 26-year-old Kelvin Gregory Maure of Parkland County “presented a threat to critical infrastructure, police, and the public.” Court records show the explosive items included triacetone triperoxide (TATP), a high-explosive used in terrorist attacks including the July 2005 London bombings, as well as erythritol tetranitrate. In an interview, Isaac said investigators are determining whether Maure subscribed to any specific ideology or group. Isaac would not discuss specifics about what Maure is alleged to have said but noted “there was definitely some anti-government type of sentiment to a lot of what he had been posting.”
