'RCMP should have been contacted earlier,' CATSA admits after airport pipe bomb discovery | CTV News

'RCMP should have been contacted earlier,' CATSA admits after airport pipe bomb discovery | CTV News

This is a lot to do about nothing.  The kid had a pipe for all intent and purpose an empty pipe that he adequately explained.

People watch too many American Movies!  There is a great difference between the US explosives laws and the Canadian Laws!  It's not like the movies!

In Canada if you were to mix baking soda and water in a jar the purpose being to blow up your house, you can be charged under the explosives act!   It is the intent that makes it an explosive in Canada; not the success or the lack of it!   This I think, is a good thing.

Don't forget that it is the intent, admitted, that at some point he and his friends were meddling with a pipe bomb like any normal kid in today's society.  Making rocket fuel or doubling up rocket motors to make a bang same thing; you can be charged under the explosives act.

No one was negligent at this airport; they used common sense.  This is a piece of pipe, nothing more, nothing less and you can't take it on the plane so, you get rid of it; it is not up to us to clean your garbage from your bag.


Lighten up people and take the time to know what you are doing and saying before you start.  That, is called responsibility.
