Well, don't smuggle, then. Not exactly brain surgery.
False declarations and the seizure of goods
If you do not declare goods, or if you falsely declare them, the CBSA
can seize the goods. You may permanently lose the goods or you may have
to pay a penalty to get them back. Depending on the type of goods and
the circumstances involved, the CBSA may impose a penalty that ranges
from 25% to 70% of the value of the seized goods.
Items such as tobacco products and alcoholic beverages are seized
permanently when they are not properly declared.
Border services officers may seize all vehicles used to unlawfully
import goods. If this happens, you will be required to pay a penalty
before the vehicle is returned to you.
