Canada has criminalized the use of Imperial, that's focked up!!
The law requires that measured products (such as fuel and meat) be priced in metric units............
The truth is that Canadian government's metric brainwashing has failed! The truth is that the Canadian metric conversion is totally forked! The facts are that unless the US and all the building trades want metric (and we Electricians hate metric!) Canada will stay Imperial!
Want more proof of the Canadian government's hypocritical metric brainwashing failure?
In 2005, the Ontario government announced changes to the secondary school math curriculum that would allow imperial units to be taught along with metric units. This marked a huge turn from when the previous governments did everything to make sure that the curriculum only used the metric system. This was done in light of the fact that much of the private sector has either refused or been very slow to metricate, thus many students had been leaving school unprepared for the units used in the workplace. Many other provinces and territories also include the imperial system of measurements as part of their educational curriculum
One of main reasons the metric system sucks donkey balls for Electricians and many others, is that the metric system cannot be factored up and down evenly with anywhere near the same ease as Imperial.
Who cares about Base 10 for measurements, it's only a convention due to the fact that Man has 10 digits.
Simply because base 10 is the de facto standard for math does not make it a good choice for measurements! Example: you can evenly divide 12 many more times than 10, thus the Imperial system is far better for many people, no need to deal with lame-ass fractions!
