The spread of fentanyl has been devastating to many communities across Canada. Police have been working hard to stop the trafficking of this drug. While this work is important, a recent case in Ottawa, Ontario, shows that jumping to conclusions with drug charges can have serious consequences.
An Ottawa man lost his home when he was wrongly accused of dealing fentanyl. The case, which is making headlines across Ontario, began when police raided the man’s apartment in April after receiving a complaint. They discovered a powdered substance in a closet and proceeded with drug charges against the occupant, who was held in jail pending trial.
