The Case for Restoring CSA

Advocating for renewal, reform and recovery of the Canadian Standards Association.

In 2012, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) launched a lawsuit to eliminate its only competitor, P.S. Knight Co. As a regulatory entity however, CSA shouldn’t be competing commercially at all. In this affair and a host of others, CSA has been compromising the rule of law for commercial advantage and abusing its regulatory position for profit. CSA has financially exploited the electrical sector and has undermined its own authority and legitimacy in Canada and around the world. CSA should be returned to the rule of law and restored to its intended purpose.
