Are provinical governments over-involved in our lives?

I've read two news articles involving a furtherance of Ontario government legislation:

As much as I understand the context behind the legislation, are we allowing the government to take to much
responsibility in our lives?  As much as the family unit has changed, personal responsibility is getting lost somewhere and
the government is picking it up.  Changes to almost any kind of licensing in the last 10 years and the conditions to meet
the criteria are costing the average resident more money. I wonder if a law will come out to ensure residents have two
rolls of crap paper in each household bathroom as stipulated in annual license renewals.
