Yes and no, it is nothing more than the truth that is being told to the person in question. It is simply to save them from loosing the car while I get the warrant. Again, I cannot lie to them to force a consent search, well I could but it would not end well for me. If I did the first thing ANY defense lawyer would do is bring the fact up that I did this then see what PC I had. If I'd had none and coerced the search I would be in hot water and the defendant would be cleared. It is in essence nothing more than educating them to what WILL be happening and allow them the chance to at least keep their car.

And no I can not just take your car and keep it forever the warrant needs to be filed in a "reasonable time" as well. I do not know what it is (never needed to know) because my warrants are on the desk to go to the court that shift but my impression is in by the end of the court's closing (if at night or weekend the end of the next court day).

AGAIN, PA LAW..

Also.. Taranwanderer
Not law in PA, not sure who told you that. As I said, it is recommended sometimes to avoid trouble depending on circumstance but not big trouble (you prob mean arrest). If it was a PA Sheriff they are not police so I would not necessarily trust everything they provide. Most cops do not know many of the gun laws either though... They are a bit convoluted and change constantly. I try to keep up and I do not even get half of them. When they change they usually take up to a year to get the new info out to us..

So from what I'm reading here some US citizens would give up their IV Amendment right? I cant imagine why anyone would voluntarily waive one single Constitutional right. If an officer believes he has probable cause, let him present it to a Judge and get a warrant.

Yeah it would surprise you how many people would be willing to allow ANY right to be given up... 1st through the rest...

It is against the law to bring your gun. We generally do not have shoot outs on city streets let alone in a campground. Like any city there are bad areas and good research prior to your trip would allow you to avoid issues.

Hate to break it to you but more bad things happen in places where everyone says it can never happen... Often worse than the big cities. That being said, different country (city, state, whatever) different laws.. Follow them or do not go, your choice.

The same way the rest of us CDNs do. We pay attention to our surroundings, avoid the bad parts of town at night, don't get involved with drugs/dealers, etc... Generally, if someone wants to rob you, give them what they want and they will not hurt you - then call the police. There are no guarantees you wont accidentally find yourself in a high-risk situation up here, as in any city in the world, however, our violent crime rates are far lower than almost any US city/region - mostly gang related and domestics. The chances of you needing to protect yourself from us are miniscule. Come visit, enjoy yourselves, and RELAX! We like Americans (and your dollar!).
Having been in your fine City the worst trouble you will get is kiiler gangs of Mosquitos! A beautiful city IMHO!

Without wanting to push the boundaries of the what is acceptable here, all I will resectively say is learn the laws when crossing the border either way. It is not "against the law" to travel with firearms from the USA into Canada or vice-versa, so long as know the specifics of what types of firearms you can bring across the border and have the right paperwork from the country you are entering.

As far as allowing a police officer entry into my travel trailer here in Canada...not without a legal piece of paper saying they have the right to do so. I've got no issues with police, am friendly and cordial if/when I am stopped, but all I am going to hand over are my drivers license and insurance which I am legally obligated to do.

Sounds to me you were arrested in the past and did not agree with it. The courts are available to hear your grievance with the arrest. Be thankful they are only a call away and willing to come to your aid! Thank you ALL law enforcement officers!!!!!!!
