Guns Seized In Flood Zone

Could your guns be seized in Ontario by the OPP?

I caught this news item on Sun Tv about how residents in flooded High river were forced to evacuate and not  allowed to return after eight days. During that time RCMP inspected homes for possible victims, crime , looters and in the process removed any firearms found in their inspections.

Is that legal?

Residents were not allowed to return back to their own resident during the eight days RCMP went from house to house.
