No the Canadian attitue is not to keep it a secret and hide. If it was then these sites would not be open to the public, and would be hidden inside of other sites with strict password control and access.
If by pushing to have airsoft 18+ and restricting its access to minors is to you, secret and hiding meh. I call it proactive and open.
If this becomes more main stream and supportive by other countries, it will only help us more. As it will give us history and proof that it works. Now if only we could get all actually agree to 100% support the 18+ rules (retailers/teams/players) then the next steps would be easier to take.
