While I am grateful that are borders are guarded from the barbarians at the gate (Americans?), I scratch my head and wonder if this “seizure” of “illegal” drugs is something to crow about – as if a cure for cancer was found.
Rook went on to point out how significant the drug seizure was: “I want to stress to you just how big it is. If this cocaine were street ready, it would have been enough for over 100,000 hits.”
The CBSA’s Kim R. Scoville praised the officers for keeping dangerous drugs from entering Canada, “Had this quantity of illicit narcotics made its way into our communities undetected, the impact could have been devastating. The CBSA is truly Canada’s first line of defence, and this record seizure is a prime example of how frontline officers are actively protecting Canadians every day.“
Of course, I’m not even sure if the story is true, but it makes you wonder if they saved all these “victims” from a certain euphoria – and perhaps destined for looking for hits from legal pharma sold out of peoples’ medicine chest excesses?
