Why would Ottawa charge students to view National Building Code?
Why would it charge anyone?
I am working on my Construction Management Certificate at SAIT in Calgary, AB, and I find it so completely ridiculous that our government forces us to build homes according to the “code” (National Building Code of Canada) but then denies us access to it (i.e., view it online for reference) unless we pay them almost $300. This is our corrupt government for you!!!!
Editor’s Note: Actually the price is MORE than $300 if you want a paper copy ($350) or a permanent download PDF (ALSO $350… not a nickel discount for them not having to print the thing… only the government would come up with pricing this irrational). A 2 month subscription online is $45; 4 months $70; 1 year $140
