A town just east of Montreal has become the focal point of an investigation into a ricin-laced letter mailed to U.S. President Donald Trump. The RCMP confirmed Monday that officers were conducting an “ongoing operation” at an address in Saint-Hubert, Que. — a borough of Longueuil just across the St. Lawrence River from Montreal — in connection with a letter mailed last week from Canada to the White House containing the deadly poison ricin. RCMP Cpl. Melanie Cappiello-Spebanne told theToronto Sun the operation is directly involved with the toxic letter investigation and involves their Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) team.
