Kitchen sink water line requirements

I built up my DIY confidence from some excellent videos by Shannon. Now, I am building a new kitchen in my basement and currently working on the rough in for the sink. While working on the waterline connection, i had some basic questions, i tried to find information on the Ontario code, but could not get the satisfactory answers. Hopefully some one can help me out here.

1. I am using 1/2 inch pex pipe, which i believe is the most common used size. I have an existing 1/2 pex pipe nearby which goes to the washer and is easily accessible. But i read somewhere that for the kitchen sink, i should have direct connection from the main line (3/4 inch pipe). I could not find this information in the ontario building code. Does it really make much difference?
