The RCMP charged the youth last week, saying he tried to persuade someone to plant a bomb.

He is charged with knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity and with counselling someone to use an explosive or other lethal device to cause death or serious bodily injury.

The police, who began investigating in December following a tip from the FBI, say no actual device was ever planted.

Police say a potentially explosive substance was found during a search, removed and blown up to neutralize it.

The case will next come before a judge Feb. 4, when a date is to be set for a full bail hearing.
