There is an army of men and women marching through the streets of Canada in uniform, poised to participate in a terrorist attack. They just don't know it yet.
That is the conclusion of an RCMP investigation into Canada Post, which determined that the country's mail service is poised to be abused by terrorists. A 2012 RCMP report obtained by the Canadian Press outlines this threat and details the countless ways criminals are using the Canadian postal system.
According to the report, criminals use Canada Post to transport guns, grenades, chemicals and drugs into and across the country. In one case a rocket launcher was shipped across Canada through the same service most of us use to send birthday presents.

"There is a diverse range of contraband goods being shipped through the Canadian postal system, some of which pose a risk to the safety of Canadians," says the report.
