Finally some good news related to fentanyl.

That is, there's now less of the deadly filth on the streets, since
the Surrey RCMP recently busted three suspects and seized thousands of
doses of illegal drugs.

An investigation was launched in November that focused on drug
traffickers supplying addicts on 135A Street.

Police raids in January removed 4,140 doses of suspected
heroin/fentanyl, 521 doses of methamphetamine and 410 doses of crack

It's no secret what a horrible toll deadly opioids like fentanyl have
taken on our local streets, particularly that forsaken strip of road
in Whalley.

Inspector Shawna Baher, Surrey RCMP's proactive enforcement officer,
notes that Surrey's number of overdose deaths is second only to
Vancouver in all of British Columbia.

The aforementioned investigation, she also notes, has no doubt already
saved lives.

Now it's the judges' turn.

If these three people who were arrested are indeed found guilty of
pushing this garbage, when it comes time for sentencing we sincerely
hope the judges draw inspiration from that old Irish curse, herein
paraphrased: "May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine blind
illegitimate children chase them so far over the hills of Damnation
that the Lord himself can't find them with a telescope."
