In the late of 2016, the Canada Border Services Agency along with RCMP seized one kilogram of carfentanil(A particular narcotic painkiller) Drug. When Royal Canadian Mounted Police made a press release the news spread like wildfire about the carfentanil & other drugs.
Police blamed the mailing infrastructures like many US officials since all the drugs came through the mail system. To put a stop to this concussion the Canadian government introduced a bill that allowed the customs officers CBSA to open mail packages that are smaller in dimensions.
A Spokesman told how this bill will help Canada Border Services Agency since this would let them check packages. For eg, larger mail CSBA will target from country specific but this makes impossible to do with the mails that are under 30 grams and they do not have authority to open screened mail.
Sergent Luc Chicoine explained to us that,”small mail packages caused a massive problem for the police. Instead of sending a 1-kilogram package, they will send 1,000 envelopes of one gram”.
The main reason is to open packages that are under 30 grams, officers or agensts need to receive special permission from the sender or the receiver.
So there is a good chance that it will pass and that no one will detect it. For example, you can send a party card to someone’s name at home with a few grams of fentanyl. So it’s pretty easy.
With the tens of millions of parcels coming from abroad entering the country each year, it is difficult for customs officials to detect those that contain drugs.
China’s main fentanyl sellers
Mainly drug traffickers exploit canadian postal flaws very easily and RCMP indicates China is one of the biggest sellers in thier list.
With the help of Jean-Philippe Décarie-Mathieu, they uncovered china ships fentanyl to canada mostly and other shocking thing is that a site contains seven pages of results and there are about fifteen results per page. So we have several Chinese sellers who ship fentanyl to Canada.
Radio-canada came into contact with some sellers and they do ship opioids into canada at ease.
A few Chinese sellers have written – “The expedition will take three days. We have a 100% successful delivery record.
Another said, “I can ship up to 10,000 pills in Canada. We have 98% success with our deliveries to Canada. ”
Canada Border Services Agency spokesman, Dominic McNeely told”We can not open all the parcels that pass here. It’s impossible. It’s unthinkable. We intercept it.” and he added,”Hoping we’ll be able to stop more fentanyl”.
