News release from the Integrated Border Enforcement Team (IBET)

Integrated Border Enforcement Team lays charges for drug importation

Coutts, Alta. – The Integrated Border Enforcement Team (IBET), a joint force operation between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and Calgary Police Service (CPS), has charged a man for importing cocaine into Canada.

On Nov. 21, 2022, CBSA officers discovered and seized 53 kg of cocaine following a secondary examination of a commercial transport vehicle at the Coutts border crossing. The drugs, which has a street value of approximately $5.3 million, were hidden within a shipment of produce and have been referred over to IBET for further investigation.

On Nov. 22, 2022, Jagroop Singh, 25, a resident of Calgary, was charged with the following offences:

  • Importation of a Controlled Substance contrary to section 6(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act; and,
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking contrary to section 5(2) of theControlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Singh is scheduled to appear in Lethbridge Provincial Court on Nov. 29, 2022.

“I cannot overstate the contributions of each law enforcement partner represented in IBET. Together, we successfully prevented harmful drugs from entering Canada and harming our communities.”

–       Supt. Sean Boser, OIC of Federal Policing – Calgary

“The safety and security of Canadians is our government’s top priority. By stopping illegal drugs at the border, we’re keeping our communities safe. This seizure is another great example of the ongoing cooperation between the CBSA, the RCMP and the Calgary Police Service in securing our borders.”

–       Brad Wozny, Regional Director General, Canada Border Services Agency

“Anytime a significant seizure like this is taken off our streets is a win for the communities we all work in partnership to protect.”

–       Acting Supt. Melanie Oncescu, CPS Criminal Operations and Intelligence

IBET’s mandate is to enhance border integrity and security along the shared border, between designated ports of entry, by identifying, investigating and interdicting persons, organizations and goods that are involved in criminal activities.

Alberta bans masking mandates in schools, guarantees in-person learning

Published on

Edmonton – The Alberta government says school boards can’t require students to wear masks in school or be forced to take classes online.

In a release, the government says it has made regulatory changes that guarantee students have access to in-person learning.

The changes also say that students cannot be denied in-person education by school authorities due to their personal decision to wear or not wear a mask.

Last week, the Edmonton public school board asked Alberta Health and Alberta Education whether it can require masks as schools deal with a wave of viral illnesses that is sending thousands of students home sick and straining hospitals.

Premier Danielle Smith says the changes go into effect immediately and will create an inclusive environment by ensuring personal and family choices are respected.

Smith has been critical of mask rules in schools, saying they have adversely affected the mental health, development and education of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Parents and students have told me time and time again that they want a normal school environment for their kids,” Smith said in a release Thursday. “We have taken steps to protect and enhance educational choice.

“Families are free to make their own personal health decisions, and, no matter what that decision is, it will be supported by Alberta’s education system.”

The government said the in-person learning change applies to grades 1-12 in all school settings, including public, separate, francophone, public charter and independent schools.

The masking change applies to those same grades and schools, but also to early childhood services.

NDP education critic Sarah Hoffman said the changes show the government doesn’t have a clue about what’s happening in Alberta schools.

“We know that respiratory illness outbreaks have been widespread this fall, causing intense stress and increased challenges for students, staff, and families,” Hoffman said in a release.

“School districts are struggling to staff classrooms as illness moves through students and employees.”

Hoffman said it is unrealistic to expect that school districts can staff in-person and online classes simultaneously with no additional resources.
