Spanning over years you would think they would have learned by now to "Make It Right."

As pointed out - this is an aged video (news report). One of many reasons why licensing was pushed in BC.

On another note - I did not see or did not hear of any mention of the inspector being a member of CAHPI, or matter of fact any other home inspection association. In fact there are other similar type reports out there, that make a number of associations look questionable; not to forget about the "condition" of any person performing a home inspection.

Would it not simply be more professional to stop this constant bickering and in particular personal attacks? Especially while others are watching and perhaps taking notes!

I have no mercy for any Association not approved by InterNachi. I have even less mercy for copy cats.

You obviously did not grasp the content of Claude's post...

Much better to try to find a positive solution rather than firing pot-shots at each other.

Helen's problem seems to be that she treats CAHPI BC more like a corporate business than a trade association. She wants to dominate the industry, much like Pepsi or McDonalds, instead of providing her members with benefits that will directly influence their individual success. The way I read it, she seems to think that padding the corporate account by running a dictatorship is much more important than her members business interests.

I agree Nick. What a ****.

It seems that the attack and counter attacks between capi and InterNACHI continues.
However AlbertaACHI bylaws do not say anything about membership in other associations and I would suggest that trying to do so would violate the Canadian bill of rights guaranteeing freedom of association.
Secondly I would fight any association that tries to restrick my membership simply because I choose to join another association.

After reviewing all the other standards that were previously approved I can say that the CCHI certifications is the best of the lot. All of you CCHI's can be proud of that fact and can truthfully say and advertize that you are the best trained and most qualified Home Inspectors in Alberta and Ontario.
When you are the best most qualified why would you want to spend your hard earned money on a lower level training and certification program.

CAHPI isn't thinking things out here. www.marketing.nachi.org is now the largest design/marketing/printing operation in the inspection industry. We were printing marketing pieces with the CAHPI logo on them and were charging CAHPI nothing. Our member's brochures are everywhere and we're printing more by the millions. The brochures promote both CAHPI and their members for free. They should be sending us thank-you notes instead of trying to stop us.

That being said..... All of your hard work is being sabotaged, and subverted on this very thread! If I were a government official or a member CAPHI who is reading this thread and seeing all the vile and vulgar comments on this thread I would think long and hard about doing any business with InterNachi! I would consider the vulgar comments to be a "representation on the heart and mentality of this Association" and as a government employee or a member of CAPHI I would immediately distance myself from this Association.
Question....... if the members treat each other this way...... how can "an outsider" expect any different? The answer is obvious!

On another thread you said you were going to "clean house". I think that that time is rapidly approaching.
Gentleman...... with all due respect….if you truly care about this Association and deep down in your hearts if you think that you are truly a "Professional" and if you think you are the solution and "not the problem" please act according.
Regards, Frank
here here Frank.
Clean house Nick.
To many paying for 5 or 6!

She's a cancer on our profession. I have to figure a way to cut her out and throw her into the incinerator. She needs to find a new job in some other industry. I'm working on that.

Agreed. She'd be better off managing a bank branch somewhere instead of trying to capitalize on something she is not personally attached to.

Imagine if she did one-tenth of the work that Nick does to help his members. She'd be an even bigger ****.

BTW- Is CanNACHI still around? Haven't heard of them in about 2 years. I figured they stepped back to focus on their school
