No bill of rights, no freedom of speech... other than that, how is life in BC? Frankly it looks like a paradise to me, and I'm setting my sights on this area of the world. How would you rate life in BC vs Washington or Oregon?
Gun stuff is interesting, but not a total deal breaker. I can live with a Garand, which appears to be legal in CA.
No CCW, but better gun wise than California. Gun laws are federal, no provincial laws.
HK SL8 OK
SKS D OK
M1 Carbine OK
You can even own an XCR, should they ever become available. 5 rnd mag limit for semi auto centerfire rifle.
No AK, FNFAL, many others also banned
Canadian law currently prohibits .25/.32 cal handguns, and those with barrels under 4.14". 10 round mag limit for handgun.
Handguns registered since 1934, all guns registered since 99/2000.
Vancouver is like 3rd largest city in Canada, so all the usual big city liberal/crime issues and problems, but believe it or not I'd say on the whole provincial government is more conservative than WA State government and is friendly towards gun owners. North/Central B.C. is basically like Alberta.
But this is Canada. Taxed to the $#@$% hilt, new Conservative government hasn't started fixing gun laws yet. Lots of looney liberals still in the east, don't get me started on Quebec.
Canada. Come for the scenery, stay for the stupidity
