What Is Considered A Weapon?

The Criminal Code of Canada defines "weapon" as any thing used, designed to be used, intended to be used, or for the purpose of threatening or intimidating any person or causing death or injury to a person. One does not have to use a traditional weapon, such as a knife, to be charged with this offence. For example, a photo frame, if used in the manner described above, would be considered a "weapon".
