One of my professors at Waterloo was involved in designing bio-mech
devices (replacement hips, spine aids, etc.) He ALWAYS insisted on being
called DOCTOR to ensure professional/peer equivalence in meetings,
pre-op planning and operating rooms.

I fear that there will now be some layering of the engineering license
in Ontario as a result of the Ministry responsible for Building Codes
and Permit Obfuscation trying to regulate the engineering practice. I
may become:
Paul Ransom, P.Eng, Small Buildings, Large Buildings, Structural, Legal

Additionally, the OSPE wants to lobby to modify the engineering practice
requirements so I might have to add qualifiers for my Certificate of
Autorization, on top of my license.

This is NOT the way to protect ANYBODY.
