CBSA seize second shipment of Canadian cannabis heading to Caribbean

November 24, 2023 | Staff

Canada Border Services Agents in Nova Scotia have again seized a large quantity of suspected cannabis on its way to the Caribbean in October.

Upon inspection, border services officers at the Port of Halifax, with assistance from Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) intelligence officers, discovered two large boxes with 377 kg of “suspected” cannabis and 1 kg of suspected hashish.

The two boxes, part of a marine container of personal and household goods, contained 765 packages of suspected cannabis and one package of suspected hashish.

The alleged cannabis products were then turned over to the Nova Scotia Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The seizure is similar to a previous incident in August at the same port in which 165 kilograms of suspected cannabis was found by border service officers who were inspecting a marine container. The shipment was also destined for the Caribbean.

The CBSA reports seizing more than 6,150 kilograms of cannabis and 96 kilograms of hash coming into Canada so far in the first and second quarter of the 2023-2024 fiscal year. The agency reported more than 10 thousand kilograms of cannabis seized in the previous fiscal year, along with more than 12 kilograms of hash.
