Hopefully Doug rids us of the scourge known as OCOT. They effectively do nothing for the skilled tradespeople of Ontario other than to extort outrageously inflated fees from the pockets of hardworking trades. As an electrician of 43 years service I watched my license fee go from $60.00 every 3 years to $138.50 annually immediately upon the inception of OCOT. I’m not a math wizard but thats’ roughly a 600 per cent increase. Any common sense thinking person can tell when a government agency “is peeing on your shoe and telling you it’s raining” just because they know they can get away with it.

    It’s too bad so many tradesmen are ignorant to the true design of the OCOT. It’s a self governed body, why wouldn’t you get involved with it and represent electricians?
    An extra few hundred dollars a year to be able have your voice heard?
    I’m sure you could make that wiring up one hot tub under the table like some electricians I know.
