On July 22, 2018 Faisal Hussein, a Canadian-born 29-year-old male of Pakistani heritage and Muslim faith, opened fire with a handgun on citizens along Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, killing two and wounding 13. After an exchange of gunfire with police Faisal Hussein turned his gun on himself.
Faisal was known to police. He had posted favourable comments on jihadi websites and had recently visited Afghanistan.
In mid-2017 Faisal’s brother, Farad Hussain, suffered an overdose. He has been in a coma ever since.
In September 2017 firefighters responded to a carbon monoxide alarm at a house on Liatris Drive, in Pickering, Ontario (40 kilometres east of Toronto). Inside the house they found a cache of weapons, including 31 identical high-end handguns, and 42 kilograms of carfentanil. It was the largest carfentanil find in North America; if not the world. This house was Farad Hussain’s home at the time of his overdose.
The media misrepresent the 42 kilos of carfentanil as a major narcotics stash. Actually, it was a massive chemical weapons stockpile.
A 2016 AP article titled: Chemical weapon for sale: China’s unregulated narcotic, stresses that:
“Before being discovered by drug dealers, carfentanil and substances like it were viewed as chemical weapons.”
The article quotes Andrew Webber, Assistant Secretary of Defence for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defence from 2009 to 2014. Asked about carfentanil, Webber states bluntly:
“It’s a weapon.”
Carfentanil was developed in the 1970s as an emergency tranquilizer for large animals, however:
“Governments quickly targeted it as a chemical weapon.”
Carfentanil is 100 times stronger than its weaker cousin fentanyl which is 50 times stronger than heroin. By weight and volume carfentanil is as deadly as traditional military-grade nerve agents.
This information is confirmed in a Guardian article titled: Dose as small as a grain of sand can kill you: alarm after Canada carfentanil bust; which came out on November 12, 2017 in response to the carfentanil find at Farad Hussein’s home. The article points out:
“Carfentanil has been studied as a chemical weapon by US, China and Israel.”
