Is this legit ticket?

I just noticed this on activecaptain.com in a description of an anchorage in North Channel, Lake Huron.

...the Conservation Officers who come around to your boat asking to see proof that you paid sales tax on your boat. And when you can't find the reciept for your sales tax payment, issue you a ticket. Quite an experience.
I am not aware of this requirement. Anyone know if this is legit?

Re: Is this legit ticket?

Does this state not require the boat to be registered? If it displays a registration sticker and numbers, at least in PA and MD we would have had to show proof of paying the tax to get the registration.

I've never heard of this happening. Seems like an odd addition to the job description of an Ontario Conservation Officer. They're focused on fishing regulations and environmental issues. I've never heard of them being used to collect provincial sales tax on boat sales, but our province is broke so maybe...

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Pretty much any ticket is legit until someone takes it to court to prove it isn't in order to get out of it.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
