    Not uncommon to deal with the township. Typically the enforcement/approval/inspection as it relates to the provincial code gets farmed out to local government. That's where regional differences creep in as one guy interprets the code one way and another guy interprets it another.

    In Dufferin county the townships used to do it but it moved up to the county so that one guy does it all now to keep things more consistent.

    It's actually very similar to the Highway Traffic Act. You have one set of rules that are supposed to be applied uniformly and equally across the province. Regionally though the application and subsequent infractions/tickets/charges for identical behaviour varies depending on what the local police are like.

    That was what I was told when they put in my new system...bedrooms equates to occupancy, the driving force to the size of the tank, not how many fixtures you have. Five people using one bathroom or three bathrooms still produces the same amount of waist. I paid a little extra and had them put in the biggest tank, not willing to quibble with the math.

    back to topic:

    Went to a security expert with a buddy who was looking to design a secure room for his collection. Lots on the wish list but cost prohibitive.
    He was told, in the business you deal with 3 types of thieves.

    Ones that are opportunistic; grab your tool box out of the back of your P/U as they walk by or in the middle of the night.

    Two.. smash and grab types, kick in the door and take what they can carry and get out. These guys can be thwarted by simple having having an alarmed two locked doors security system. They know they have limited time once the alarm goes off, so you put obstacles in their way to get at your guns. If they have to work to long to get to your safes they usually won't.

    Then there are the professional thieves, a VERY small percentage, maybe 1% of thieves. They will work to get what they came for. Trying to stop them is very expensive and usually not successful. They're the types that will cut a hole in the bedroom floor with a chainsaw to drop into the gun room. He laughed and said some people spent $2k on a secure door in a wall built with 2x4s and 1/2" Gyproc. Takes two minutes to cut a hole beside the safe door and walk in.

    That's why the storage rules are lax with terms like 'reasonable deterrent'.....to whom...the smash & grab or the professional. They know a 20v Dewalt 4" angle grinder can cut thru a lot of security rather quickly so it's hard to be specific in what's required to be meet secure storage regulations.
