Andrew Coyne: Death Before Regulation!

Andrew Coyne whines about the evils of frivolous regulation. This time its mandatory hockey helmets for minor league coaches in...gulp!...that bastion of Freedom, Calgary Alberta!

I can’t stand it. I can’t stand it…

Yeah, Andy's right. It would be much better for some guy to get corked in the head with a puck and his family sue the City of Calgary for their collective underwear.

As the husband of a municipal worker, I know: every municipal H&S regulation likely had its roots in a lawsuit (or percieved possibility of a lawsuit).

It's sad that so much regulation comes out of fear of a lawsuit instead of a reasonable assessment of the actual risk.
