Blame Canada?

A whistleblower has filed suit in Ontario, Canada, alleging that FedEx Canada – a subsidiary of Memphis-based FedEx Corp. – is letting shipments cross the U.S-Canada border without the proper customs paperwork.

That could potentially allow dangerous goods into this country – at a time when most eyes are focused on the U.S.-Mexico border to the south.

Details of the suit, filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, can be found at this website.

Here’s an excerpt:

Consequently, this class of shipments would likely include a high percentage of controlled goods (defined as strategic, dangerous or regulated, such as nuclear dual-use technology, dangerous chemicals or U.S. goods being shipped from Canada). According to Canadian Customs regulations, these controlled goods are monitored closely, in part, to assure that they don’t pose a security threat to other nations, such as the United States.

The still-pending lawsuit, filed by a former Federal Express Canada Ltd. customs department employee named Nazir Ghany, alleges that FedEx Canada has engaged in “unlawful activities” that violate the Canadian Customs Act. As a consequence of reporting these alleged violations, Ghany contends he was demoted and subjected to retaliation by FedEx Canada management — to the point where he claims he had no choice but to resign from his job.
