    I guess the same punishment that anyone should endure if an elected official takes something they write and sign it into law. I mean, very few people have everyone vote on everything they write.

    We, including Canada, live in a representative government.

    Republic: "A state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives..."
    Democracy: "A system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives."

    By signing to paper work for the permit, they give us the permission to enter and inspect anytime during regular operating hours. So I can stop and check in anytime. Our state law allows for us to abate any unsafe or life safety issues. I don't enforce OSHA but could call if you prefer over just fixing it and make it safe. Or if bad enough could just red tag the job until it is corrected. Only had to go to that extreme once. Some people are just hard headed.
