Just a quick reminder....firearms of any kind (including restricted weapons, eg: spring knives, pepper spray, tasers, brass knuckles, etc.), in the possession of anyone, will draw the attention to anyone entering Canada/Canadian waters, checked by the Coast Guard, RCMP, Conservation Officers and local police. Even transitting to Alaska on the west coast is subject to Canadian laws and any licence to carry in the U.S. is usually unacceptable. Check with Canadian authorities and/or leave your weapons at home, please. Cheers, Richard.
