Something that I had not thought of till someone asked me last week was protection from wolves? I have no idea.[/QUOTE]
You are not allowed to bring a handgun into Canada, well you can, but it would be easier meeting the Pope.
I'm not sure the regs on hunting firearms, I know Americans come up here all the time to hunt, but that is for something specific such as Moose or Elk hunting. Bear spray.....you'll probably only piss them off as they hunt in packs. Cougars have no fear of you either.
One other caution if I may. Do not become the hazard on the road for everyone else. I see it every winter up here, people arriving with their all season tires, (new so they must be good) on the SUV, and end up bottlenecking the traffic behind them. Which in turn forces impatient people to take risks passing that vehicle.
We have one rule in Bruce County when you experience a White Out. Don't stop!!! Slow down, yes, but maintain forward momentum, because they guy behind you is counting on you continuing.
Sounds strange, but think about it, if you can't see and do end up off the road, you're going slow and the damage will be minimal to your vehicle. If you get rear ended, the damage and severity of the accident would be less as you are both moving in the same direction, the impact speed would be the delta.
