I asked this a few months ago, but didn't get an answer. How do I start a SOBO hike with bear spray? Am I allowed to bring it in to Canada? Can I buy it in Waterton?

   Thanks!

What do other thruhikers do? How can I start my hike with some spray? Is the only option to have some mailed to the Canadian post office General Delivery?
