LayinHP. Because they were fishing Conservation Officers are allowed to enter and check to ensure they are obeying the conservation laws without warrant. RCMP are ex-efficio Conservation Officers, in virtually all provinces in Canada, and as such can also enforce Conservation Laws. Under the same token RCMP are ex-efficio Liquor Inspectors too ... hence can enforce Liquor Laws. So no. No warrant required . . .

jdcrush .... I would guess it was a planned operation, or some sort of special initiative. Its not like the Conservation Officers and RCMP do this all the time, b/c if they did it wouldn't be news ! haha. And like there are "traffic" cops I'd guess there are special cops to deal with this type of stuff too.

Thats what it was, planned opertion for sure. Everyone does it, rcmp usually looked the other way, someone must have caused a problem.

that's my favorite part about ice fishing.. and i always thought as long as you were in the shack it was ok. good to know now. one night we stayed on the ice till like 1:30am drinking. 14hours, 50 beers and a 40oz on the shack floor later we decided to leave. only caught 3 fish.. we could have gotten in some serious shit...

60% of the time, it works, everytime

I'm sure the sitting in the shack and fishing isnt that big a deal ... maybe the "leaving" after a day / weekend of drinking could be the issue and this is preventative maintenance ?
