New BAN going into effect in Canada! What will they think of next?
Doorknobs?? Really?? Does it really take a ban??


Residents looking to construct new homes in Vancouver, Canada, will soon need to comply with a building code regulation set to go into effect on March 14. The doorknob, the key to opening and closing doors, is being phased out, with a new rule stating that all portals and faucets in future buildings must have lever handles.

While businesses and houses that have already been constructed won’t be forced to change current knobs, all new construction must include levers.

This will mean that, over time, the doorknob could become a thing of the past, The Vancouver Sun reported.

The change might seem curious at first glance, but Tim Stanton, professor and director of the University of British Columbia, said that Vancouver’s interest in regulating doorknobs likely comes from something called “universal design.”

They say in the article it is for “universal design.” whatever the fuck that means. Apparently not everyone in Canada is nimble enough to open a door with a regular knob type.

Apparently, Vancouver wasn't content with being a 2nd place city where doorknobs were concerned.

It's going to take more than some building code changes to get your city talked about on every single North American late night show currently on air.

Toronto still has the biggest doorknob. Good luck eclipsing that.
