My guess is that [the unlicensed electrician who was sent to jail] will get caught in another province…
Lots of you have said the 30-day jail term for Richard D. Hazel, for doing unlicensed, unsafe electrical work - a repeat offender - is too much. But an almost equal number give the jail term a thumbs up.

Some of you have posted that you disagree with the Ontario court’s decision to jail Richard D. Hazel for 30 days for being a repeat-offender in the underground, unlicensed, permitless and unsafe electrical work racket.
But lots of you support the jail term (a first in Ontario history for an unlicensed electrician).
Here’s a comment from Robert Sloan, Langstaff and Sloan…
“Just in case anyone out there thinks this is excessive, we have a staff of 10 and mostly do residential renovations. This year our permit fees will exceed $50,000. My guess is that next time this guy will get caught in another province and his already lengthy criminal record will not apply as it would here in Ontario.”
