    This is just silliness but then where I live they have banned fireplaces a few years after an ice storm where everyone lost power and families without fireplaces moved into family friends places that had them so they could stay warm.

    Gotta love politicians wasting time on nonsense and refusing to deal with the stuff they were elected to do.

    Actually their insurance that is if they had insurance would tell them to get these things, because the insurance doesn't want to pay out. Don't need much in the way of government.

    I dont live next to anyone. Its my fricken house, on my land. I could care less about you or your house. Perhaps you should have insurance, or YOUR house up to snuff, or better yet have fire suppression equipment built into it.

    Poor CONs can't get drunker faster by buying doubles in public! The agony of that! Stay home and drink the Crown straight from the bottle!

    You get LOTS of choices in hamburgers, just not raw... again in your own home eat that ground meat straight from the tube!

    But the true CON no-sense is thinking IF ya can't get double alcohol in one glass or raw burgers you have given up a 'right'.

    As CONs are quick to point out about other issues- show me where in the Constitution a restaurant must serve raw meat or a bar has to serve you liquor with a splash of mixer?

    NO THING the CONs are ranting about are a right.... more a whim.
    More libbo nonsense. Libbos don't understand yhe difference between necessary regulations and government infringement on your right to choose.

    From all of us that handed you this great nation where you're free to take your freedom for granted...you're welcome!

    Because your children don't have a say and we already decide that as a parent you have certain obligations to keep them safe/healthy. Also anyone who comes to visit will not know if you have built your house in a shoddy substandard way and you are putting their lives in danger as well. Again a something we have decided as a society that you really don't have the right to do.
    having said that the doorknob thing is just plain dumb.

    Insurance companies don't all have the same requirements. There are reasons why there are mandated standards in the construction of buildings. Building codes are to protect public health, safety and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures. Building codes have been around for thousands of years for good reason
