comment Gloves for knuckle protection that can get wet but not necessarily waterproof
I have a summer pair of gardening gloves that are rubbery on the fingers and palm, mesh on the back of the hand. I am only protecting against paddling blisters and minor burns from touching hot cookout, but I expect they would work for your purposes too.

comment When (if ever) do backcountry campsites in the major Canadian national parks in the Rocky Mountains grow quiet?
September is when I love to go into Algonquin, which is super crowded in the summer (eg spotting portages by the line of canoes headed to them). Pretty much everyone you meet there in September has grey hair :-)

comment Canadian Law with respect to knifes
You will see different enforcement of this on a Toronto streetcar or subway than at an Algonquin campsite - and rightly so - which is why a definitive answer isn't possible

comment How to deal with aggressive homeless when exploring urbex?
Allow me to recommend defining or replacing the word clochards - many North Americans make up portmanteau words that end in "ards" or "tards" to make them more insulting, like securitard for example. At first read that's what I thought you were doing. Using a word like "vagrant" or "street person" might make your question more understandable.

comment Is playing musical instruments like Harp/Harmonica, Flute unsafe during backpacking trips?
This is the theory behind bear bells. However you should know the joke about telling grizzly scat from brown bear scat: grizzly scat has bear bells in it :-)

comment Where can I find visitor statistics for Canadian provincial and territorial parks?
I take issue with your claim that camping only on designated sites means no solitude. In canoe camping parks, backcountry camping is limited to designated sites, but each site is for one party and well separated from others. I have gone for days without seeing other people except at portages. You might want to look into the specifics for the parks you're interested in - a designated site doesn't mean a crowded campground, at least it doesn't have to.
