It is great to examine the law here and discuss it but I respectfully caution you against relying on any of it because it is nice conversation but not legal advice. I cannot imagine any scenario where the doc that I saw was not real. Furthermore if it had not been located on one of the '.gc.ca' web sites I would not have wasted 2 hours of my time trying to interpret it. I do not think it would have been the RCMP web site, as the law had not been passed. The only other possibility that I can think of is that it was the CBSA web site. Below the section on POSSESSING a prohibited weapon, was a new one that addressed ACQUIRING one. If the doc was intended exclusively for the use of CBSA, then I would expect that the subtitle would have included the word 'Import' and not the far more general term 'Acquire'. Based on comments that I'd seen, and the way the doc was written, my assumption was that this text would become part of the Canadian Criminal Code, if not in May then soon after. I only collect knives and I have zero expert knowledge to share with anyone. It's now May 20th and I have been unable to find mention of any such legislation on the .gc.ca web sites. I find this is a little odd. I started this thread, only because I was wondering if anyone else had any better knowledge of this situation.
