    It is a good question though.

    I you are crossing the border into Canada don't carry anything more sinister looking than a small pocket knife. I believe an E.O. member got hassled over a tire billy because it had a leather thong through the handle thus making it a weapon in the eyes of the Canadian official. The 16d nail in the business end didn't help the driver's case.

    Be aware of your surroundings and keep your doors locked. If an area or situation doesn't feel right, leave. Don't park near cargo vans, especially white ones. These vehicles are the number one choice of serial killers, rapists, plumbers, pornographers, pedophiles, expediters and various other sociopaths.

    I can legally carry a firearm anywhere in the country, as I'm a retired Sergeant with the Lucas County Sheriff's Office in Ohio. When I was driving for Premium Transportation, I NEVER carried any type of weapon in the vehicle. It was against company policy and I made Canadian runs regularly.

    I once had to pick up a trailer from Canadian customs.
    The driver tried to take a gun into Canada. I remember thinking, what a idiot. Don't know what happened to the driver, but I got his load.

    My weapon has always been an old ugly truck. Never been hassled, they move on to anybody else that looks like he has 2 pennies to rub together
