Cornwall Chief Building Official Christopher Rogers holds the two sections of the 2012 Ontario Building Code, which went into effect Jan. 1, 2014. Each volume is about 3-4 inches (7-10 centimeters) thick. For comparison on the left with the red cover is Ontario’s first building code from 1975. Rogers believes the regulations surrounding building are only going to get more complex going forward. (Cornwall Newswatch/Bill Kingston)
