MONTREAL- Seven people are scheduled to appear at the Montreal courthouse Wednesday afternoon in connection with a massive drug bust involving the seizure of more than 43 metric tonnes of hashish.

The RCMP estimates the value of the hashish seized to be worth more than $860 million. The hashish was seized from containers at different points in time before and after the investigation, dubbed Celsius, was initiated. Eight people in all were supposed to be arrested on Wednesday. The RCMP is still trying to locate Sylvain Parent, a 39-year-old man from Gatineau.

The RCMP’s C Division, based in Montreal, said the investigation into the hashish was conducted with the help of police in Pakistan, Italy, Belgium and the U.S. According to a release issued by the RCMP “such a large quantity of hashish could have supplied every resident of a city of 10,000 with a daily dose for more than 11 years.”

The investigation began after Canada Border Services Agency found hashish in offshore containers at the ports of Montreal and Halifax in 2009 and 2010.
