Bought a car in Quebec registered in Ontario without the saaq and owner just by given documents

I bought car in quebec.. went too saaq they said I needed the owner so I called them and I could not get a hold of them. The left me receipts and registration but I was informed registered owner was deceased and current transfer tax was not paid by the person selling to me on the bill of sale. I went to Ontario and they sign over the car in my name no questions asked. With all the given documents. I dont believe the car was unregistered in quebec because seller didn't want to pay that tax. What would the outcome be of a car registered in tap provinces. Could she's fraud me of the sale and repossess the vehicle?

When the vehicle is registered in Ontario, it is no longer registered in Quebec.

There's no transfer tax in QC, or anything to be paid by the seller.

I'm confused by the OPs actual post. Can someone explain it?

OP bought a car in Quebec and thinks that because the previous owner didn't go to saqq (apparently dead) so now seller which is probably relative/spouse, will attempt to get the car back via fraud. OP didn't know that in some provinces there is no transfer tax or that a vehicle can only have one valid registration.
