Germ Warfare against Canadian Politicians. Letters allegedly containing Anthrax were sent to MPs in Canada
posted by jpate (5 comments total)

 
This comes a day after the Wal-Mart in my hometown of Victoria, B.C. received a letter that also supposedly contained Anthrax. The article states that this was "the first time a letter said to be contaminated with anthrax has been delivered... in Canada," and I'm more than a little creeped out that we've racked up subsequent incidents so quickly.

How does one spot an envelope containing Anthrax?
