Why are all the lockpick sets US-only? Canadians need to unlock their stuff too!
because worrying about other Country's laws is a bit much, and there's enough to worry about in the US
Yep, to many laws to deal with, I personally work with people international for my stuff, but doubt SouthOrd would.
Conveniently, Canada only has one set of criminal laws, so it's pretty easy to navigate. Lockpick sets are legal to own, possess, and carry, as long as they aren't intended for criminal use.
The relevant statute is the Criminal Code of Canada, with the emphasis being that it's only illegal to possess if you have done or intend to do something illegal with them:
351. (1) Every one who, without lawful excuse, the proof of which lies on him, has in his possession any instrument suitable for the purpose of breaking into any place, motor vehicle, vault or safe under circumstances that give rise to a reasonable inference that the instrument has been used or is or was intended to be used for any such purpose, is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years.
I ordered this through the SouthOrd site about 2 years ago. The price was much higher, but it shipped no problem.
ya, but there are more THIEVES in the US than our Canadian brothers!
