    Bears you don't mess around. I remember camping and they didn't build the bear lockers. The rangers advised us to not put food in the cars as bears will tear into the cars to get the food. So the camp leader decided to hang the food in a tent on a tree far off to the side. It was high enough out of reach and the branch was too small for a bear to walk on it to get to the tent.

    Next morning the tent's bottom was ripped out and the ranger had pointed out that a smaller bear had went on the limb (claw marks on the branch) and while it couldn't get to the tent, the branch dropped low enough for a tall one to swipe at the bottom to tear holes so the food fell out.

    They can even smell snack bars inside their wrappers. It's fun to watch a bear play with a bear proof container and knock it around until it gets tired and moseys off.
    In fact, the law makes your employer responsible for PRSI, though you may have to pay an employee's share. The amount of PRSI paid by you and your employer depends on your social insurance class.

    Nice. I am going to Canada this summer, so I'll remember that. Here in Holland the only bears I ever see are in the zoo.

    When I lived in the north country we had a bear come into the porch after the little bits of beer left in bottles. I now rinse everything before recycling it, even though it is kept in a locked garage.

    The drive from Vancouver to Calgary will be exciting enough you won't have time to think about bears.

    A good incentive to take Ted Nugent along in the interest of safety.

    It could be awkward in such a small space I guess.
