If you’re not careful, you may be committing an offence under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. Don’t try to flog products that are banned from sale in Canada: baby walkers, infant self-feeding devices, lawn darts with elongated tips, polycarbonate baby bottles containing BPA or products made from jequirity beans – whatever those are. Be aware of labelling requirements for stuff like baby gates and cribs, cosmetics, garden torches, window coverings with cords and hockey helmets, and potential safety issues arising from children’s jewellery containing lead, toys with sharp edges or points and the like. Watch out for microwave ovens with damaged doors. Stereos should have instructions and working volume controls, so buyers don’t end up with hearing loss. Yes, we live in a nanny state.
