Any opinions with the new code book. Any new rules there that you really like, or dislike? Just seeing what everyone thinks about it.

I haven't bought the new CEC yet so can't really comment.
The CSA website does list what some of the changes are:

It sure is pricey this time!!

Surely there must be somebody somewhere or a website that can list most/all of the changes for 06.

I have the new code book and the thing that I really like about it is that it comes with its own little cheat book. I guess its the CEC's version of UGLYs. Another thing that I noticed is that splits on the same circuit on a counter top can be placed next to each other. I haven't really gone through everything though beacuse I will be going on a course that details all of the changes.

I haven't got it yet as BC will probably take a year to adopt it, The Safety Branch usually has seminars with the BC changes

Yeah 135.00 for the Hard Copy and 295.00 for the CD is steep.
