    Great…another cost to be added to the Government Fee Recovery charge.

    “Enforcement”
    Does anyone actually enforce this now? I know I get more calls than I ever did.

    Gee, anything like water inspections?
    Once upon a time in Ontario, the government shifted the costs of inspecting waterworks to the waterworks, who had to hire and pay an outside inspector. At the time, it was compared to “making the crooks pay for the cops”, and caused a tiny little problem in Walkerton, with seven deaths.
