Mr.Meister >> Laws are always a problem when they restrict what we want to do but are wonderful when they restrict what others want to do that we disagree with.

Laws don't restrict bad behaviour, fear of negative consequences does that. That's the flip side of freedom, responsibility. Since no person is an island, people that want to live a rich, healthy, long life will need friends, or at least a minimal number of enemies. This is why zoning laws are unnecessary, because it assumes that people are selfish to the point of becoming non-rational.

>> You don't suppose that all the growth nonsense you have been spouting has anything to do with the presence of oil in Alberta do you.

You mean the tar sands? The resource that has been just sitting there, waiting for risk taking individuals to figure out a cost effective way to extract and sell it consumers?
