Canadian Terror Plot Fact Check

For whatever reason the media keeps reporting that the Canadian terrorists had 3 tons (6000 pounds) of ammonium nitrate which they then claim was 3 TIMES what was used in OKC.

Unless I’m missing something that’s not right. McVeigh and company used 5000 pounds of ANFO so the numbers are real close to the same. Even if you consider the reports from Canada are using meteric tons, that still only 6600 US pounds.

I’m not minimizing this but I can’t figure out how they get the 3X claim. If someone else can explain it, lemme know but it looks like another case of a reporter being real bad at math and the rest of them parroting the first.
