Styrak, you'd be surprised at how strong SOPs and policies can be. A SOP is a document in Canada btw. Just because its not in a statute doesn't mean it can't be enforced. The Airsoftcanada FAQ is a good resource, but its not the be-all and end-all of what is legal and what is not. Having a face to face with the officer(s) that will be deciding whether you bring your AEG through, or whether you're getting a gloved finger in your rectum is always a good thing.
And, AFAIK, this IS a thread about doing research.
Mopic's question was valid. As, even in the US, they can bypass that rule by having the trades covered or temporarily altered. But I'm sure you already knew that, cause you read the FAQ and did the research.
