On May 8, officers at the North Portal border crossing inspected a boat that was being brought into Canada. During the inspection, they found barnacles on the rear and mussels in the live well. Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Environment sealed the boat and arranged for its decontamination.

On May 26, CBSA officers found an undeclared .45 calibre pistol, 13 overcapacity magazines, a prohibited switchblade, and a prohibited AM-15 semi-automatic assault rifle.
