      Would it be allowable to create a by-law requiring occupants to provide and maintain basic fire protection appliances, such as small  extinguishers and fire blankets ,within a lot?

        Does not seem unreasonable to me.


          Seems a smart thing to do, but unlikely to be enforceable.

          The law considers a man’s home to be his castle.

          The OC does not have the required elevated power to dictate such measures.

          Of course if there are higher regulatory requirements ( like mandated smoke detectors) then the OC can enforce such compliance.

          I also look at how “ police able “ some by laws are. It’s up to the OC to enforce their bylaws. But the OC has only limited capability to enter people’s property. So how does one test thst owners are compliant. Ask them? Your likely to get no answer or a lie.
