So does the Airhead count as a "portable toilet"?

My understanding (could be wrong) is that the info I posted above applies to ALL of Canada, except the one statement about portable toilets, which only applies to Ontario. The source is Transport Canada's official site. he way soeone explained it to me and the way Iread the document is that if the toilet is installed, there must be a pump out. If it is a true portable (not installed) then it is illegal in Ontario but legal in other provinces. The page I linked to is the one for foreign (non Canadian) boaters. I saw something about Canadians that had non conforming systems already in place before the law went into effect getting a 5 year window to upgrade.

I am not trying to bust anyone'cs chops; I think composting is a superior way to do it. But it looks like it might be against regulations in Canada right now.
