    Arrow Canadian regulations

    I e-mailed transport Canada and MPI the 5 point harness utube video this morning and asked why we can't have seats like this in Canada? I haven't heard back from transport Canada but someone from MPI (our insurance company) emailed me almost right away asking me to call him so we could talk about this.

    He said there is no way you can buy a seat in the US and have it certified in Canada and vice versa

    He said that kids outgrow there seat by weight before height, which I disagree with because my ds outgrew his by height and no where close to the 40lbs the seat says it can hold. He also said they have never had a child who should be in a seat, and not find a seat for them to fit in. Also to not go by the height listed on the seat but where there head is and there shoulders are. He told me on an infant seat that the top of the head could be even with the top of the seat before you need to stop using it. I know here people say an 1" from the top and that is always what I have been told!

    My son is in the marathon with the second from the top harness so I am hoping that will buy me a couple of years. But what if it doesn't? He is looking into this for me. He told me I could get a combo seat and that would last longer and I told him that the MA top slot is higher then most combo seats and is the one of the highest harnessed seat in Canada. I told him the Radian is the highest and he had heard of this seat!

    Ideally I would really like to get the Regent, maybe they will try to get it in Canada Although I kind of doubt that.
