1.5 billion dollars in drug seizures in 3 years for border services: report

The Canadian Border Services Agency reports nearly 1.6-billion dollards worth drugs have been seized in the past three years.

That's according to La Presse.

Busts took place on planes, trains, boats and road vehicules.

It seems martime transport remains trafficers' most effective smuggling method.

"The drugs siezed at a port of entry are often sent to another place in the country. As an example, let's say something coming from Europe, which would be destined to Toronto could be processed by our Montreal post facility", said the CBSA's Stephane Malepart.

International flights made up more than half a billion dollars in confiscated dope.
