A Montreal sorting station was put on lockdown after a suspicious package was discovered.
The package was destined for Luka Rocco Magnotta, who is the Canadian pornographic actor and model currently on trial for killing and dismembering Lin Jun, a Chinese international student at Concordia University.
At 5:20 a.m. on July 17, the Montreal police received a call about the package, which was found at the St-Laurent facility. During the lockdown, fifteen employees were quarantined for several hours and one person ended up at the hospital due to shock.
In the suspicious package was some powder, which has now been described as a harmless substance.
In response to this incident, Canada Post officials have said that workers need to be aware of risks and show not take chances when finding suspicious substances in the packages they handle.
