The Joshua Boyle Story--Should Become the Next Netflix Sensation, No?
Nothing fictional--not Shameless, not Arrested Development, not Stranger Things--can compare to this real life dramedy:
A wannabe spy for CSIS, raised in a rural, devoutly Christian southern Ontario home, the son of a federal court judge, who married and then divorced Zaynab Khadr, who once lived in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Afghanistan, is only the start of his unusual attributes. His harrowing ordeal — taking his pregnant second bride, an American whom he met through a Star Wars gaming forum, backpacking through unstable Afghanistan where they were abducted and held hostage for five years until their rescue in October — is more perplexing still.
And now his arrest, on allegations that span the time since his return to Canada, less than two weeks after the Boyle family’s cheery visit with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, caps the intrigue.
