A neighbour complained to the city’s building department, and an inspector showed up to take a look.
He said the tree house would have to come down because Warren didn’t have a permit and the structure didn’t meet building codes.
“I was first shocked and amused,” said Warren, who spent six years working on the house. “Then I became angry. Now I’m in a state of utter ‘What is this?'”
Our lives are controlled and regimented so much, we don’t even control our own homes. This is Canada and maybe it is typical of other Western democracies. We should be ashamed of how our governments treat us like children! Are things like this just going to go on indefinitely?! Wake up and start reforming the system. Start by abolishing property taxes.
