Another nightmare brought to you by Canada's immigration system.
Twenty-three-year-old Nasradin Abdusamad Ali appeared in a Vancouver provincial court Friday morning.
Ali , 23, was previously charged with one count of arson in relation to inhabited property and one count of possession of incendiary material at Langara College. He is accused of setting three incendiary devices at the school on April 1, two of which detonated and forced staff and students to evacuate.
According to Vancouver police, Ali was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with another student on the college campus on March 7. This assault was not reported until after the April 1 incident, but police say an investigation led to an assault charge.
On March 26, Ali allegedly robbed a Langara student near a bus stop on East 53rd Avenue and Fleming Street.
Ali was apparently living his family in Surrey, in metro Vancouver.
Surrey has one of the highest immigrant populations with a 43% immigrant makeup. It also has a growing Islamic presence.
