This is definitely worth watching because kayak registration, like bike registration, just makes no sense. It's required in Idaho, but does nothing beyond contribute a few bucks to a worthless program aimed at quagga mussels from power boats.
From what I can tell this new Canadian requirement only extends to boats "involved in a 'commercial activity.'" Now, that could be a royal pain in the ass for an American paddling schools or camps that do trips to Canada but I don't think it extends to privately owned boats. Still, it could be a problem in the future. Hopefully the Canadian outfitters will kill this thing for us.
