Red Tape, otherwise known as bureaucracy, is something frequently encountered by all those who deal with large organizations such as the OCDSB. Spacesim's encounters with Red Tape have included the many Fire Marshals visits and the shuffling of the club back and forth between the Media Centre and 440 Albert Street.
Red Tape in 2007-08
During the 2007-08 scholastic year, Spacesim was notified that they would be moved to another room of Ottawa Tech to make room for a growing masons' school. Spacesim was later told that they would not have to move, but even later they were told that they would have to again. Coincidentally, or related to a worldwide Illuminati conspiracy, some type of inspector announced that the Habitat was unsafe.
Red Tape in 2010-11
At the end of the previous year (2009-10), Spacesim was subjected to an inspection from Occupational Health and Safety, resulting in the temporary closing of the 440 facilities. This closing continued into the start of the 2010-11 year, resulting in a severe lack of worksessions at the start of the year. Instead, EEPs and Orbit training sessions were held at Lisgar.
