Is BYOB illegal in Ontario?

After Perigee was decalared the winner in my "special dinner" run-off post, I made my reservations and requested a "birthday vintage" ('62 Krug) for my wife. I also asked about corkage policy, and the response was. "we don't have a corkage policy." Then I heard Ontario allows no BYOB; true? And does this mean that unless the staff at Perigee can find the Krug for me (and mark it up a $100, I'm sure), I can't have it? I ask because I'm sure I could track down my own bottle here in Chicago and have it shipped to the restaurant, re-sold, or whatever. But not if it's illegal. Any thoughts?
