This is wrong, (Edit: This language was too harsh, apologies)

ITAR is an American EXPORT restriction, not a Canadian IMPORT restriction. THe US border guards going in are not checking for ITAR as your are IMPORTING goods into the US, on the way out, the Canadian border guards;

a) don't know what ITAR is; and
b) don't care.

I've personally imported ITAR items across the border in person many times when I lived in Ontario, and there was never a problem.

It's not necessary to comment on every thread, if you're not "in the know" just read the thread and move on.
