Charges Laid re Christmas Eve Scaffolding Collapse, Toronto.



I looked for the previous threads on this and couldn't find it or them in "News" or "Labour and Consumption" or "Central Canada."  


Here's the story from CBC News.  It isn't much, just that charges have been laid.  I expect more details will emerge in the days to come.

They deserve every cent of that as a fine.

Fines are useless.  Find the owners and charge them.

I think they should be charged with four counts of manslaughter.


There has been charges laid.
