Not guilty verdict in Labour Code trial



BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 10, 2017 /CNW/ - Today in Ontario Superior Court, 7506406 Canada Inc. (ORNGE) air ambulance was found not guilty of two offences of failing to ensure employee safety, contrary to s.124 of the Canada Labour Code Part II, for failing to provide pilots with a means to enable them to maintain visual reference while operating at night, resulting in the deaths of Captain Donald Mark Filliter and co-pilot Jacques Dupuy.

They were also found not guilty of failing to ensure the health and safety of their employees contrary to s.124 of the Canada Labour Code Part II by failing to provide adequate supervision for daily flight activities at Moosenee, Ontario, by eliminating the position of Base Manager.

The charges were laid in 2014, following an investigation into the 2013 crash of an air ambulance helicopter during a night-time flight, resulting in the deaths of the pilots as well flight paramedics Chris Snowball and Dustin Dagenais.

The PPSC has 30 days to decide whether or not to appeal the decision. The decision to appeal is made in accordance with the guidelines in the PPSC Deskbook, a public document.
