I'm afraid I'm extremely well aware of how codes and standards are made but,
if you have codes, well, that is where you look first. The law is the law,
and handing down learned comments from the lofty heights of academia can
count for remarkably little when it all hits the fan in the real world of
architecture and building.

Codes are rarely more relevant than factual information and often fly in the
face of reality. Not sure if you have seen how codes and standards are made
but it is often not very scientific.

Maybe more to the point than studies and Safe Kids Canada media campaigns,
is what the codes say.
