“Project manager in Metron sentenced to 3.5 years” by Jennifer Brown, Canadian Lawyer Magazine Canadian Lawyer Magazine quotes Norm Keith in an article about the sentencing of a construction project manager found guilty of criminal negligence in the deaths of four workers who fell from a scaffold in 2009.

“There is no criminal intent, but the threshold for this type of offence is very low — it’s ‘wanton and reckless disregard.’ I don’t see it here — I don’t think he was reckless — he was told ‘don’t worry about it’ by the guy in charge of enforcing it [use of lifelines],” says Keith, who believes there will be grounds for appeal.
