According to reports a Canadian woman was arrested for allegedly mailing a deadly poison, ricin, to US President Donald Trump. Ricin is deadly when inhaled and there is no known antidote. The woman had allegedly sent similar packages to two addresses in Texas.
The Daily Mail explains:
A female suspect has been taken into custody for allegedly sending a letter containing the deadly poison ricin to Donald Trump in a package addressed to the White House.
The unidentified woman was arrested by Customs and Border Protection agents trying to enter the US from Canada at a border crossing in New York state, a law enforcement official told CNN Sunday.
She was allegedly armed with a gun when she was detained by officers.
UPDATE: Apparently the woman arrested is from St.-Hubert, Quebec, just outside Montreal. READ: Police operation underway south of Montreal as ‘several’ ricin letters investigated in U.S.
It should be noted not all Quebecers are anti-trump:
Of course, this is not the first time a Canadian woman has been arrested by US officials over poison. In June 2020, a Winnipeg woman, Sijie Liu, was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty for trying to purchase 10 ml of a substance used solely as a chemical weapon along with a specialized apron, mask and gloves to handle it.
She had used the dark web to arrange the purchase in 2019, but fortunately the person she was buying it from was an undercover FBI agent.
The woman asked the seller to ship her order to a North Dakota address. She was arrested by the FBI, when she drove down to the US to pick up her order.
There was no mention of what the substance was or what the woman intended to use it for.
