    Doorknobs which set you off this go-round... first I am planning on having lever doors on my new house, second the regulation is in CANADA, in ONE city, and for NEW builds.... pretty much leaves your umbrage takin' ass out of it don't you think?

    When someone tries to claim 'his kind' made America great.... every damn time....

    That answer enough for you????
    Dear leader has already screwed up the privacy between you and your doctor. The government is interferinging marriage.

    Therein lies the difference between you and those of us who made America great. We want freedom for all, not just ourselves. We don't have to necessarilky agree with something to think the government should keep their hands off our rights. Once a government starts taking, it's damn hard to get it to stop. That's what Canada is dealing with.

    Should your thinking apply to business owners? theaters and factories? I mean what business is it of the Government to tell a private business owner that smoke alarms, Fire Extinguishers and Fire escapes are mandatory.
    Yet buildings have been built for thousands of years without these features. Since you think they are a good idea they should be mandatory?
    It wasn't that long ago that if someone wanted to go out and build themselves a house (log cabin or whatever) they could. Now one must navigate through a mountain of regulations before they can even lay the groundwork on a building they are paying for themselves?

    If the government wants to do this with public buildings so be it, if a man wants to build a house out of tires, mud, logs, cardboard, whatever, that should be his business.

    I agree with that and it's I like my meats cooked all the way through, but if Haymarket wants his burger patty half cooked, that's HIS business.

    Google "Our lady of Angels school fire" and " Iroquois Theatre fire" and then tell me that safety measures shouldn't be mandatory. Save your Government "intrusion" bull****. And if you construct a house next to mine with disregard to things like proper up to code wiring and fire resistant materials and your house catches fire and mine is also destroyed because of your lack of common sense, guess what? You and I are going to do more than just have a conversation about the matter.

    They all love to whine about the Big Bad Federal govt, and extol the virtues of local government. They're so rabid that they hear about a govt regulation, and they started reading the script about the Nanny State

    They don't even realize it's the local govt doing this

    We view our freedoms differently than Americans, we have reasonable limits upon said freedoms but then again we don't believe in the right to have doorknobs. We value different values than Americans instead of a right to guns we have a right to education and a right to vote. Canada came of age after the U.S. in a more modern era and we have a more modern concept of rights and freedoms, one that actually applies in the modern era.

    Should we also make them fire proof, waterproof, tornado proof, airplane crash proof, alien invasion proof, deterioration proof, violent attack proof, sure it would be mighty safe, just no one would be able to afford it. Maybe we should just mandate that everyone have a force field around their house.
    Its amazing the human race has survived for for thousands of years without these seemingly mandatory features.
    Just because someone thinks something is a good idea doesn't mean it should be mandatory.

    Actually, your concept of freedom more resembles the Middle Age, not a modernvage. When your right to vote is no longer of convenience to the government, they'll take that from you, too and you'll just sit back and let them do it. Why? Because you value differently, in that you place less value on it.
