Re: So much wrong with this, Oh where to start

Unless they've changed the rules , the last I heard here is that OCOT [Ontario College Of Trades ] has hired a bunch of " trade cops " who go from place to place and if a person can't produce a genuine proof of certification , if they catch them performing repairs when they show up , it's an automatic 500.00 fine. Now we get these plastic ID cards we have to carry with us all the time . Even if you have the certs , if you don't have proof on you or in your wallet , it is still 500.00 . I don't know how well that would work in the US . What do you guys think ?
