The CBSA announced four significant seizures of methamphetamine in British Columbia over the last six months. In a major operation conducted by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) in Metro Vancouver, over 6,330 kilograms of liquid and crystal methamphetamine were seized. The drugs were hidden in canola oil jugs intended for export to Australia. This marks the largest methamphetamine seizure to date by the CBSA. The agency made four separate busts between December and May, with the help of detection tools at the container examination facilities.  The total amount seized is more than triple the methamphetamine confiscated by the CBSA in the Pacific region between 2018 and 2022. Five Australian citizens and one American citizen have been arrested in connection with the operation.
