[Opinion]  It wouldn’t be another day in North America without a crazed lefty initiating violence against a conservative.  The only difference in this case is that the target was not some innocent old lady with a Trump hat on, it was the President of these United States himself.

Just a few days ago it was reported that an envelope consisting of a a letter and a powder, which was later determined to be the poison ricin, was sent to the White House, apparently from Canada.  Three days ago the New York Times reported:

‘Ricin Is Said to Have Been Sent to White House

‘Letters sent in recent days to the White House and to local law enforcement agencies in Texas contained the lethal substance ricin, and investigators are trying to determine whether other envelopes with the toxin were sent through the postal system, a law enforcement official briefed on the matter said on Saturday.

Investigators believe that the letters were sent from Canada and have identified a woman as a suspect, the official said.

The letter to the White House, which was addressed to President Trump, was intercepted, as were the letters to a detention facility and a sheriff’s office in Texas.

The envelope to the White House was caught at the final off-site processing facility where mail is screened before being sent to the White House mail room, according to a second law enforcement official. The Postal Service irradiates mail that is addressed to the White House and other federal agencies in the Washington area, and the mail is sorted in a facility that samples the air for suspicious substances.’

Just yesterday it was announced that an arrest had been made in connection with the potentially deadly letters.  Politicoreported on the arrest, stating:

‘Woman reportedly arrested in case of ricin letter sent to White House’

‘A woman suspected of sending an envelope containing the poison ricin, which was addressed to White House, has been arrested at New York-Canada border, three law enforcement officials told The Associated Press on Sunday.’

Today we are learning the identity of the lovely ‘lady’ who authorities say is capable of the attempted assignation of a foreign Head of State via poisoning.  Capable, in the sense that she was willing to try, not that she had the necessary skills or know how, thank goodness. 

Canada’s CTA News is reporting:

‘Quebec resident Pascale Ferrier has been identified as the suspect alleged to have sent letters containing the poisonous substance ricin to the White House and different locations in Texas, including a police department, CTV News has confirmed.

A team that specializes in biohazards swarmed a Montreal-area condo Monday morning, evacuating several units as they looked for evidence connected to the ricin-laced letter sent to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Ferrier, 53, was arrested at the New York-Ontario border on Sunday while trying to cross the border into Buffalo, N.Y.

Ferrier was initially expected to appear in court Monday afternoon in Buffalo to face federal charges in the U.S., but sources tell CTV News the appointment was postponed to tomorrow.’

Ferrier, originally from France, became a Canadian citizen in November 2015. According to sources, she is a computer programmer.

She moved back to Laval last spring, weeks after being released from a Texas prison.

Court documents show in 2019 she was charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon and knowingly using a fake Texas driver’s license. Ferrier spent three months in jail according to arrest records.

The Texas Police Department that laid those charges was also sent a letter with ricin last week.’

From what the Canadian news outlet says, it seems like there is a pretty good chance that they have found the right person.  Everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, however this woman sure sounds like she has the motivation to act, the question is where did she get the poison, and was she working with anyone else?
