The new Canadian electrical code is going to disallow reducer washers on a bonding connector.

Yes, the rule just says you can't use reducing washers if the bond path is through the washer. A bond bushing provides a bond to the connector with out using the reducing washers.

In an industrial setting I prefer a meyers hub with an RE. For commercial work I will use a knocked out blank if the reducing washers won't tighten up enough.
