Here's a link to the Industry Canada website displaying all the sales and revenue of Beltronics Canada located in MISSISSAUGA, Ontario.
Now here's the funny bit. It states that Beltronics makes Radar Detectors for export only (as well all know).
So here's the government logic. Radar detectors are illegal. They impede Law Enforcement Officials and as a result make our roads more dangerous which puts Canadian lives at risk. However; we'll allow these devices to be manufactured here as long as they are sold to Americans whose lives are less valuable and can afford to be lost.
How about this. Crack cocaine is illegal in Ontario, however; we'll open a manufacturing plant to produce Crack as long as its exported. We know crack is dangerous and can destroy the lives of Canadians so we'll only allow it to be exported.
Same arguement! I just changed RD to crack both of which are illegal and considered dangerous in Ontario.
Basically the government needs to make up their damn mind. Either RD's are illegal and dangerous and therefore you should not make them and profit from them OR they should make them legal!
Happy Canada DAY!
