Good news but want some backstory

From our friends to the North - CTV News - Calgary:

More than 31 kilograms of fentanyl seized as part of 'superlab' bust south of Calgary
The search of a suspected fentanyl 'superlab' in Alberta, as well as homes and businesses in both Calgary and Edmonton, has resulted in the seizure of an estimated $300 million worth of drugs.

According to the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT), the Project Essence investigation into suspected drug trafficking led to the execution of 13 search warrants on July 7 at locations that included a suspected fentanyl lab in Aldersyde, roughly 20 kilometres south of Calgary.

A total of 31 kilograms of fentanyl and precursors were seized during the searches as well as 7,600 kg of chemicals for fentanyl production

Good - nasty shit. 31kg is about 68 pounds. We nabbed 127 pounds of fentanyl at the Southern border earlier in August.

Finding the chemical precursors worries me though - they are moving the production into this continent. That is going to make stopping it at the border that much harder.  The precursors are not themselves illegal.

I would love if they reported on the nationality of those arrested.  Cartels? Muslims funraising for terrorism? Gang activities? We need the backstory...
