Gopie ultimately travelled to Montreal in a different vehicle.
Wilson drove Fraser’s car to Montreal, with Fraser and an
unnamed woman and her son as passengers. Gopie, Sargeant
and Melissa Gittens also drove to Montreal from Toronto that
day, but in a different car. Gittens was Gopie’s romantic partner
at the time. Allegedly, like Fraser, she was also a drug courier.
Godfrey Gibson also travelled to Montreal in one of the two cars.
 The two groups happened to encounter each other while
en route to Montreal at a Tim Hortons restaurant where both
cars had stopped. Gittens approached Fraser’s car but was
waved off by Wilson.
 The two groups stayed at the same motel in Montreal
 The following day (November 14, 2009), Wilson and Fraser together took a taxi to the airport. Wilson asked to borrow
Fraser’s car while she was in St. Maarten. Gibson, Gopie and
Sargeant took Gittens to the airport.
 While Fraser was at the airport checking in, she noticed
Wilson seated at a table in the airport food court with Gopie,
Gibson and Sargeant.
 Fraser and Gittens flew from Montreal to St. Maarten on
the same flight. Fraser and Gittens had not met before, and they
had no contact until a week later, on their last day in St. Maarten. On that day, Fraser approached Gittens on the hotel’s patio
because Gittens had been the only person whom Fraser had
heard speak in English during her stay in St. Maarten. During
their conversation, they realized that they were in St. Maarten
“for the same reason”. That day, Fraser and Gittens met with
Wilson’s contact, a woman named Sharon, who gave them a total
of three suitcases to take back to Canada.
 Gittens and Fraser flew back to Montreal, arriving in the
early hours of November 22, 2009. Fraser expected to be met at
the Montreal airport by Wilson and Gopie, who would then take
her to Toronto. However, on the return flight, Gittens told Fraser
that they would be picked up by Gopie, Wilson, Gibson and
Sargeant, and taken to a Montreal motel where the suitcases
with the drugs would be picked up.
 When they landed in Montreal, Gittens and Fraser
discovered that Gittens’ luggage had arrived but Fraser’s had
not. Gittens collected the suitcase that Sharon had given her in
St. Maarten. As Fraser’s luggage had not arrived at the airport,
she was unable to retrieve her suitcases.
 Unbeknownst to Fraser, the airline had “misloaded”
her suitcases with the result that they ended up in Toronto. In
Toronto, customs officials had discovered the cocaine in her
