And just for the record (as to the confiscation issue)
2.06 Any permit issued under this by-law may
be cancelled by the Chief of Police upon
conviction of the holder thereof for any
offence under this by-law.
2.07 Any police officer may seize any firework,
spring gun or air rifle had or kept in
contravention of this by-law.
2.08 The Chief of Police may, at any time after
the expiry of 10 days following a seizure
made under the authority of section 2.07,
destroy any fire cracker, spring gun or air
rifle so seized.
