What can you legally carry to defend yourself?

Just wondering... maybe I'm starting to get paranoid, but I just want to have something on me in case someone tries to jump me for my iPod or laptop or whatever, especially since I tend to head home late at night. I mean, if it was just my wallet or even my cellphone/iPod, I wouldn't care (too much), but I'm probably going to defend myself over my laptop, since it's uninsured and, more importantly, I have files that I wouldn't want to lose (I keep backups, but I'm not good about doing daily backups unfortunately).

Given that, as far as I know, knives are illegal in Canada, what are some alternatives?

The best self-protection you can have is a ninja midget in a backpack. Those little guys are ill.

A knife is legal to carry provided it is not concealed.
The problem is, you are only allowed to use enough force to stop the attack.

If someone punches you in the face, you cannot stab them, that is excessive force, so what good is carrying a knife?

Your best bet is to take up boxing. Learn how to fight with your bare hands.

As Shaner stated, learn how to fight. Boxing is very effective as with Muay Thai and some form of ground fighting like Grappling.
