    Susan of course they did not disclose .No one even asked . And if they did just ask . They would just say not me .

In the last few years the shoreline almost from here to Rossport is now considered a Marine Sanctuary. What new laws the CRONIES have cooked up I do not Know{ reminds me of reading about BLM ours Crown Land .So much for Agate Island. I have an old publication: Archaeological Conservation in Ontario, dated 1979 #ISBN 0-7743-4503-9 ....its old but our laws are old Also check out WWW. pc.gc.ca. it may help. .....You can go across the the border here and pic lake superior agate and metal detect on the public beaches, the people are great and cordial.

    Basically anything of value can be taken from you and you charged if gov. wants to pursuit it. In my area of Ontario (southwestern) everything is covered from HIstorical laws (all grounds and waterways in the wars of 1812) and the Indian wars / Native American settlements. Also included is about 200 years of mineral claims from large land owners with inheritance claims to modern oil drill companies to utility company easements and erca watershed/ wildlife lands. plus current native American reserves... warning they are not all obvious. some in my area are the size of a small farm. (but they should have notices posted)

    Basically if you find anything of value or historical significance you committed a crime!

    With that said, what experiences has people had? any bad run ins?

    My house is 260 yrs old and I found a cannon ball in the walls (yes the Americans shot my house with a cannon in the war of 1812) and some arrow heads. I have them on display on my fireplace mantel along with a poison bottle from the 1900s, and a engineers gauge that sights the elevation of a cannon to aim at enemy. All found in my house! I had a building inspector over and he gave my a stink about them with some unlined threats of getting in trouble with the Historical committee. (as he was on it)

    Other than that I've had little issues, but I am new to the metal detector hobby. But I do excavate and locate for a career and have found stuff this way. (nothing interesting other than some old beer bottles)

    Got a link to this ? Me thinks something else is at play. Or you've gotten some purist archie's rant, etc... Because I'd venture to say that there is people in southwestern Ontario, who are md'ing no problem Yup, even finding old coins. Thus .... got a link to this prohibition that you're speaking of ? That reaches down to even private land, as you suggest ?

    Wait, do you see the irony of this ? There is this "imminent threat" and "dire laws" which mean you "can't find anything". Yet you openly tell of old things you found and kept ! Ok, I'll bite: Did you get arrested ?

    BINGO ! Now it's coming into focus. You were talking to a Historical committee person. Who is, no doubt, in league with purist archie types who tend to serve on those museum boards. And sure, you can ALWAYS find some purist archie to spout dire things. They hate md'rs after all. But you have to ask yourself: Does anyone else, besides those 2 or 3, in a random survey of a million people around you, care less ? Of course not. (Barring, as I say, if you were snooping obvious off-limits sensitive sites) .

    There's probably not a place on earth, where ...... if you kept asking long enough and hard enough, that you couldn't find someone who'll say "no". Just like if you asked a P.E.T.A. rep. if you can leave your pet bunny in the car while you run into 7-11 to get a soda: They would shreak "NO !". And spout off about animal cruelty laws. And about how your car can be confiscated. And the bunny can suffer in the hot car, etc... But seriously now: Did anyone else except that animal rights wacko care ? Of course not.

    So too do you have to sort out some things said by some museum/archie types. Not sayin' to throw caution to the wind. But ... just sayin' not to over-think it.
