I checked - in CANADA there is.
You can look it up as easily as I did.
Also known as a "stove cord" - stove wood is 16"

   Clare is correct...twice!  There IS a Canadian legal definition for a
cord and it IS very easy to look up.  It took me about 60 seconds via
Google.  I could give a link, but that would take all of the fun out of it,
wouldn't it?

Well, after 30 minutes of trying I finally found a PDF file of the
Canadian Weights and Measures site for firewood.  I hoped it would be
simple as those are the only searches I am good at.  It wasn't.


"The cord, cubic foot, cubic yard , stacked cubic metre and weight are
the only legal volume measurements defined under the Weights and
Measures Act for selling fuelwood unless it is sold prepackaged.  The
face cord, face cord, short cord, thrown cord, processed cord and
other such common terms are not legal measures in Canada".

Now I have a feeling that Clare is correct but until I see the cite,
I'll stick with what my cite says.

Well, well, what a surprise.  Mr cl and vaughn both.

1.  Claimed there was a legal definition of a face cord in Canada

2. Turned into butt heads when asked for a cite.

3.  Tucked tail in and ran when I posted a cite showing they were

I thought that we were just exchanging friendly banter.  Now I discover that
I was wasting time on a complete asshole.

Silly me.
