Four employees at Montreal’s Trudeau International Airport had their access levels scaled back for precautionary reasons as officials looked into the possibility they had been radicalized, according to a report by the Journal de Montréal. 

Aéroports de Montréal, the company that manages the airport, could not be reached for comment on Tuesday. 

The Journal de Montréal reports that of the four employees, at least two who still work at the airport have shown signs of radicalization that police investigators consider worrisome. Some visited pro-ISIL websites, published propaganda on social media and consulted an abnormal number of documents explaining how to make homemade explosives, the Journal says.

One employee, who had access to the airport’s runways and airplanes, made comments about the November 2015 Paris attacks that killed 130 people. 

The report suggests the employees either don’t work for the airport anymore or have been reassigned to positions far from the runway and airplanes.
