This Week On The Line (Trailer): Suroosh Alvi Discusses “Homegrown Radicals”

On Thursday at 12pm EDT Suroosh Alvi (@surooshalvi) will join On The Line to discuss his new piece, “Homegrown Radicals”: After last year’s “lone wolf” attack on parliament hill, and reports that at least 130 Canadian citizens are involved extremist activities abroad, Canada has been forced to address extremism within its borders. In response, Canada’s Conservative government introduced a controversial anti-terrorism bill, which some fear will only further marginalize the country’s Muslim population. VICE founder Suroosh Alvi traveled to Calgary — labeled a “hotbed of terrorism” by Canadian media — to investigate allegations of radicalization among the city’s Muslim youth. On Thursday, Suroosh will join On The Line to take your questions. VICE News and On The Line want to hear from you!
