What Is Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose?
Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose is governed by section 88 of the Criminal Code of Canada, and states: "Every person commits an offence who carries or possesses a weapon, an imitation of a weapon, a prohibited device or any ammunition or prohibited ammunition for a purpose dangerous to the public peace or for the purpose of committing an offence."
