Point 11 says:
In accordance with paragraph 11 of Council decision EC-83/DEC.5, the second round
of inspections at the Barzah and Jamrayah facilities of the SSRC was concluded on
22 November 2017. The results of the inspections were reported as an addendum
(EC-87/DG.15/Add.1, dated 28 February 2018) to the report entitled “Status of
Implementation of Executive Council Decision EC-83/DEC.5 (dated
11 November 2016)” (EC-87/DG.15, dated 23 February 2018). The analysis of
samples taken during the inspections did not indicate the presence of scheduled
chemicals in the samples, and the inspection team did not observe any activities
inconsistent with obligations under the Convention during the second round of
inspections at the Barzah and Jamrayah facilities.


Which says they were inspected almost five months ago...

Results were published in late February, but the samples were taken in November 2017. The info was almost five months old.

It really gets me heated that the numbers are so high.. I'd understand it all if it were like "3 dead, 4 injured after van jumps curb, ploughs through a few people, slams into pole"

But nooOOoo

It's fucking 22 victims, 10/22 dead.. so far

Multiple outlets have reported the guy just mobbed it down the sidewalk for about a mile, therefore I'm left hoping, for humanity's sake, the 10 dead were lined up like bowling pins where he first jumped the curb. Do people not pay attention? How do you not see the commotion down the block and think "Hmm, there's a van doing like 40 down the sidewalk. Maybe I should, IDK, get in this building and not get mowed down?"

If he did it the way that makes sense, hit and run, move down a few blocks, repeat, then the numbers add up. But then another question.. Is Toronto completely devoid of people with common sense or courage? I've seen folks chase down a hit and run driver after they gave a complete stranger's car a little 'love tap' here in LA, it's the decent thing to do! You don't just go let the guy clean up his fucking spare on another crowd!

Ugh, It's a tragedy and my heart sincerely goes out to victims and their families but I can't help but be frustrated.. frustrated that, from my perspective, they just let themselves get hurt
