Suspect packages from “forces armées”

A wave of suspicious packages from the “Forces armées révolutionnaires du Québec” landed in the mailboxes of various high-profile people and organizations Wednesday morning, but analysis of some has found nothing more noxious than sodium bicarbonate.

The Gazette notes that the name “Forces armées révolutionnaires du Québec” suggests one used in the 1960s by some part of the FLQ but those folks must be pretty antique by now and any connection must be merely a notional one.

What message does sodium bicarbonate imply? “Here, use this for your indigestion”?
