Double checked TSSA site and that's full of baloney. The new reg 093-06 only covers hydrocarbons, so I figure the mentioning of wood was a scare tactic to drum up oil sales. They just lost me as a customer.
But that raises a valid concern. Trying to regulate wood as a fuel will bring on the war crys from everyone. If they're really serious about wood stoves, they will need to go house to house with a search warrant, as catching the wood users at the source when they buy cordwood is only the tip of the iceberg. It will discriminate against these people as that will be the only area that regulation is possible. It won't catch the woodlot owners such has farmers. Plus many such as myself will head to Quebec to get it.
Wood was our last resort after discovering the government does nothing to help us handle our winter oil heating bills. It's playing with fire if it trys to regulate wood. Black market industry will have a field day, and a lot of public lands will see a few more tree stumps that it would normally, and chainsaws will be heard in wee hours of the morning. I'm going to heat my house somehow, the government be damned.
Hope I'm wrong.
