    Well sure he could have collected it if he got a special permit to collect so many plants from the land. The permit would be 100% legal as it would be issued by the Canadian wildlife agency. I am sure he wouldn't have just ripped up some dozen S. purpurea subsp. purpurea from some land and said it was legal....that is just nonsense to me....it's like saying yeah "This guy has 10 pounds of marijuana and it's not illegal."
    Hope you can grasp my view point.

    Bottom line is, it really doesn't matter.

    Quite truthfully the agencies involved have a milion and a half other things to worry about, and don't have the man power or authority to go to private residences. Add to that the problem of proving that they were wild collected, and the status of the species with the Canadian authorities (not always the same from counrty to country, or agency to agency) If they are an introduced species the rules aren't the same, and infact there a few places where CP have been introduced and are now concidered an invasive pest. Then you must take into account the matter of weither or not the land is privately owned. You will probably be laughed at by anyone you do contact.

    I know this sounds incredibly pesimistic, unfortunately it is the way it is.
    I typo, therefore I edit.
