more details on Ricin would be helpful, while it is known to be extracted from a Ricinus plant beans and used in form of oil, already in that form a small quantity will have a strong effect and result in a painful diarrhea within minutes. I just wonder if the deadly product is simply a highly concentrated oil or is it some chemically enhanced substance. There was some mentioning as Ricin being one of many naturally occurring elements in field production of Novick group of poisons.

Don't use the USPS for anything like this. In addition to the normal charges, the USPS has extra laws and charges just for using the mail to do anything criminal.

Don't mess with the USPS. If this was mailed in the US, they'd be able to figure out who sent it. I don't know how good Canada's postal system is at dealing with crimes like this.

Waiting for the Democratic claims that this is part of Putin's efforts to get Trump re-elected to begin.
