The Canada Border Services Agency is again issuing a reminder for travellers coming from the United States: leave your firearms at home. The latest iteration of the message coming after another seizure at the port of North Portal.
Earlier this week, officers discovered a disassembled handgun in the pick-up truck of a traveller who was looking to pass through Canada en route to Alaska. The firearm was seized by the officers.
This year, the CBSA has started a campaign reminding those coming to Canada to leave firearms at home, or if they are needed, to be shipped via the postal service.
Each year, CBSA officers seize a number of firearms at border crossings across southern Saskatchewan.
