Why Bother Having a Fire Code?


As a result of the 2008/01/10 Limberlost Road condominium fire that sent a man and his wife to hospital in critical condition, and a teenaged son in serious condition, the London man plead guilty for failing to provide at least one smoke alarm on each story of his home as required by the Fire Code. And received probation.

According to a recent press release, the McGuinty Liberal government thinks that extra measures could protect families. It will hold “a public consultation and information sessions on proposed changes to the Building Code that would require fire sprinkler systems in newly constructed multiple-unit residential buildings higher than three storeys.” 01

What? People in homes of 3 storys or less are expendable?
