Dude seriously; literaly ALL the info you want/need is on here; no need to ask a single question; now I can't see if you are age verified or not (I'm using tapatalk on Iphone at the moment and don't have that info), and possibly that most of this info is in the age verified section... But still, if you dig a bi you'll get to what you want;
That said; it has nothing to do a about cops and/or confusion of real/toy guns; it's just about importation regulation. Politics. Nothing else. Replicas are prohibited because of some old precedent. Guns are not because of some other laws. They need to define which is which and then an importation/ownership law is born.
You can also read the docs on the rcmp's site; it's actually easy to find and understand
