georgetown: I agree. Maybe they do not realize that if they use any of these so called weapons they could end up in jail. If you think that travelling in Canada is not safe then just stay home. No border worries or hiding pepper spray.

Never did get attacked in Canada but we did have a very funny experiance on the Kootenay Ferry. It seems a fellow decided he would give a nude full frontal, while on water skis, to the folks on the ferry. Seeing that it was cold and the water was even colder, by the time he pulled alongside the ferry, his wiggly parts had shrunk up so much that everyone and I do mean everyone on the ferry was pointing and laughing as poor shriveled lad went by.
This happened while doing the Canadian part of the Selkirk Loop. Also found a great Polish restaurant in Creston, Who would have known !!

This is what Canadians are advised by the Canadian ministry of foreign affairs.

"Street crime can spill over into commercial, hotel, and entertainment areas. Riots, though rare, occasionally occur; these are usually confined to the poorer districts of major cities, but the violence can spread to central commercial and hotel areas. Full cooperation is recommended when stopped by police.

Violent crime remains a serious concern in Florida. Criminals have demonstrated that they will use violence with little or no provocation. Many attacks have occurred in the Miami area, and others have taken place on rural roads and at interstate highway rest areas. Some rest areas have dusk-to-dawn security on site (which is indicated on the highway sign). Proceed cautiously when exiting a freeway (including Interstate 95) into large urban centres, especially after dusk. Theft has increased, particularly from trunks of parked cars in the North Miami Beach area, South Beach and at airports. Be alert, as criminals use a variety of techniques to steal personal belongings.

Passport theft is on the rise in the United States. Travellers should ensure that their travel documents are secure at all times."

What?Sounds like you guys might be scared off of coming here.
