Educators and activists are hoping to counter the success of Islamic State recruitment with a new school-based program aimed at protecting Canadian youth. Extreme Dialogue will use films and educational resources taking advantage of the stories of real people to encourage youth to question extremist ideas. Raheem Siddique (rah-HEM' suh-DEEK'), a Canadian Muslim student activist, says this is another tool in the fight against extremism. (The program is aimed at teens in the 14 to 18 age group. One of the featured films is from Christianne Boudreau, whose son died fighting for the Islamic State.)
