Architect and Engineer associations in Ontario are having their
differences with the Ontario gov't over some current legislation. We are
in a special class of 'self-regulating professionals' which is now up to
37 'professions'. PEO (Engineers) has commissioned a survey of which one
question asks me to rank professions, in order from the most trustworthy
to least trustworthy. How do I not put Engineer at the top and lawyer on
the bottom and still give Real Estate Agent (!) the proper place.

I think that the actual list of 'self-regulating professionals' was the
real eye-popper.
