Toronto Scaffold Supervisor’s 3.5 Year Prison Term Upheld
This chapter may be closed, but the legacy of this tragedy will last in Canadian OH&S for decades….
From Global News/Canadian Press:
TORONTO — A supervisor jailed for a scaffolding collapse in which four men were killed and another was seriously hurt lost his bid on Tuesday to challenge his criminal-negligence conviction and 3 1/2-year sentence.
In dismissing his appeal, Ontario’s top court agreed with the trial judge that Vadim Kazenelson had failed to take reasonable steps to prevent what was one of the province’s worst workplace accidents. The appeal, the court found, was largely based on arguments made at trial.
