  • On September 4, 2013, the Ontario Court of Appeal sentenced Metron Construction Corporation (“Metron”) to pay a fine in the amount of $750,000. At trial, Metron pled guilty to criminal negligence causing death and received a fine of $200,000. The Court of Appeal described this penalty as “manifestly unfit” as it found the incident to be completely preventable.
