Det. Paul Worden of the Toronto police homicide squad told CTV News Toronto that, in a joint investigation with the Royal Canadian Moundted Police Integrated National Security Enforcement Team, they evidence showing the boy was part of the “incel” online extremist movement.

Incels or “involuntary celibates” are males who group together online to blame women for their failures to develop romantic or sexual relationships.

They often encourage misogyny and vicious violent attacks against the female gender as a whole, as a form of “retribution” for their perceived involuntary exclusion from sexual activity.

The suspect was charged additionally with one count of murder – terrorist activity and one count of attempted murder – terrorist activity.

The boy cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The Federal Public Prosecution Service and the Provincial Attorney General approved of the new charges.

The incel strain of violent extremism is also tied to Alek Minassian, who stands accused of killing ten people and wounding 16 others in the North York van attack in 2018.
