Actually, I think we're both wrong. Missed an "other than" in CCC s.85(1). So yes, apparently they can charge him with s. 239 (attempted murder), s. 344 (robbery) and s. 85(1) (using imitation firearm in commission of offence) all at the same time and have nothing overlapping. My bad.
Just for using an imitation firearm is 1-14 years.
