Winnipeg man suspected of terrorism must wear electronic bracelet

A Winnipeg man suspected of planning terrorist activities will have to wear an electronic monitoring device and stay off the Internet for the time being.

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg man suspected of planning terrorist activities will have to wear an electronic monitoring device and stay off the Internet for the time being.

Aaron Driver, who is 23, is not facing any criminal charges.

But federal authorities are seeking a peace bond to limit his activities on the suspicion that he may help a terrorist group or activity.

Driver has been released on bail — with 25 conditions — until the court decides whether to issue the peace bond.

Driver also is forbidden from using a computer, must observe a nightly curfew and surrender his passport and any weapons.

Published reports have said Driver posted messages on social media that praised terrorist activities, including the attack last October on Parliament Hill by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.

Evidence presented at Driver’s bail hearing on Friday cannot be reported due to a court-ordered publication ban.
