TORONTO -- An Ontario construction company was fined $200,000 Friday for criminal negligence after four immigrant workers plunged to their deaths in a scaffolding accident in 2009.
In handing down the sentence, Ontario Court Justice Robert Bigelow called the deaths "horribly tragic consequences" that resulted from "serious breaches" of health and safety legislation by Metron Construction.
On Christmas Eve 2009, scaffolding from a highrise building in Toronto snapped and four workers -- Alesandrs Bondarevs, Aleksey Blumberg, Vladamir Korostin and Fayzullo Fazilov -- fell 13 floors to their deaths. Another worker survived with severe injuries.
