The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) anti-terrorist unit is on the the trail of the limping man with two missing fingers who purchased 1,500 kilogram of fertilizer.

 Fertilizer Bombing of Oklahoma City's Murrah Building

Limping Man bought sixty 25-kilogram bags of ammonium nitrate fertilizer in Lincoln, Ontario on May 26th. According to this article, 1,500 kilograms of fertilizer is a legitimate amount to purchase for use as fertilizer, but is also enough to build a bomb.

 The Globe and Mail describes the man as 50-60 years old, perhaps of European descent, with a limp and two missing fingers on the right hand.
[The limping man] told staff he was buying it on behalf of a regular customer and loaded the fertilizer onto a flatbed trailer...He was pulling the flatbed with an older model maroon or red-coloured minivan.
Anyone who can help police track down the missing fertilizer can call them at 905-688-411, ext. 4208 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) 
The G20 Summit will meet in Toronto June 25-27, 2010, at an estimated cost to taxpayers of $1 Billion. Lincoln is a little more than an hour's drive from Toronto. The G-8 Summit is in Huntsville, Ontario at the same time, June 25-27, 2010. It is feared the Summits may be a target.

I think I'd keep my children out of big malls until they find the limping man.
