Anything We’ve heard, seen or read about the so-called “War on Drugs” has led us to believe that, for the most part, it has been a failure. However, once in a while the good guys do win a battle or two. It was refreshing to hear earlier this week about how Ontario police made the largest drug bust in this country’s history with the seizure of 1,062 kilograms of cocaine worth $250 million.
That’s a quarter of a Billion dollars’ worth of cocaine that won’t hit the streets, enrich criminals and cause harm in the community. The drug shipments were destined for the Port of Montreal for eventual distribution in Ontario and were found stored in three different places. The seizure resulted in the arrest of three Toronto-area men. Let’s watch and see how our wonderful justice system handles this one. One can only hope that they throw the book at these guys, as the old saying goes, lock ‘em up and throw away the key. Scumbags who earn money off of other people’s addictions are the lowest of the low and shouldn’t be allowed out of prison until they’re too old and feeble to cause anyone any harm, if ever.
