(2) [Repealed, SOR/90-702, s. 2]
(3) Where there is any inconsistency between a provision of the Rules and a provision of the Rules that falls under the heading “Canadian Modifications”, the latter provision prevails to the extent of the inconsistency.
(4) Where the laws of a state other than Canada are applicable to a Canadian vessel or Canadian ODAS within the territorial sea, inland waters or fishing zones of that state, and those laws are inconsistent with these Regulations, the laws of that state prevail to the extent of the inconsistency in respect of the Canadian vessel or Canadian ODAS.
(5) Where special rules are made with respect to additional station or signal lights, shapes or whistle signals for ships of war and vessels proceeding under convoy, or with respect to additional station or signal lights, shapes or whistle signals for fishing vessels engaged in fishing as a fleet, the special rules shall operate so as to take precedence over any other portion of the Rules with respect to which there is an inconsistency and these additional station or signal lights, shapes or whistle signals shall, so far as possible, be such that they cannot be mistaken for any light, shape or signal authorized elsewhere under these Rules.
(6) Where there is any inconsistency between a provision of Rule 1 and a provision of this section, the provision of this section prevails to the extent of the inconsistency.
