Re: cement experts - does this look right?

Up here in Ontario the inspector doesn't even have to see the place for electrical. There is a list of "approved contractors" that never have their work checked out---and the places I've done suggest they should be.

That's only true for a small percentage of electrical contractors - ones that have consistently over a period of years have NOT had any inspection problems. Only those contractors are permitted to self-inspect. And the ESA (Electrical Safety Authority) does do random inspections of work done by these authorized self-inspecting contractors, to ensure that they are meeting electrical code.

After seeing some of the work a few of my fellow electrical contractors have done "on the sly", I'm all for 3rd party inspections.
