    Conarb, your vile peevishness never ceases to amaze me and I'm sure some others. It must be hell to live with that kind of petulance in your cerebrum all the time.

    Tiny tyrants ... so true.

    While i agree with you about eliminating SJW ... who is to say they are wrong? There are lots of people in the world who think being a SJW is the highest calling.

    Just to be clear, it is not my job to enforce minimum health and safety standards. My job is to enforce codes, by-law, and acts that I am empowered to enforce by democratically elected officials.

    True. No public employee should be able to enforce anything that is not a requirement under the law.

    This is not what is happening.

    ADA is a law that is being enforced.

    The people democratically elected an official who created this law.

    The people can democratically elect someone to abolish this law.

    The people have not done this. Therefore, the people want ADA compliant buildings.

    Who am I, you, or anyone else for that matter, to tell the majority of a country that what they want is wrong?

    I think I've told this storey before, but here it is again. My father just retired from running a store. On the subject of accessibility, he does not think that it should be a law, but because "a lot of business owners don't see it as important and those morons should go out of business".

    From the outside, you appear to be frustrated with a world that has changed around you and now has a different value structure.

    I completely agree with this statement. I find SJWs do more to alienate their cause from the rest of society than spread awareness or progress their cause.

    I believe most SJW are just tiny tyrant wannabees trying to influence others to their way of thinking or believe. The proper name for them is proselytizers

    I am not a "SJW" but unlike you "C", am not so old and bitter as to accept that the times they are a changing.
    Yes there are some bad apples in every barrel. Yes codes, laws and regulations are often written by those who are not concerned with unintended consequences. You feel so strongly, attend the open comment sessions at CBSC or the legislature and take issue.
