Bay Ferries to Pay $75,000 Fines

Wednesday, November 23, 2005
The company that operates the high-speed ferry the CAT has been fined $75,000 for failing to protect the health and safety of passengers and workers by not ensuring its passenger gangway was inspected and maintained, according to a CBC News report. Bay Ferries pleaded guilty to the charges under the Canada Labor Code. They stem from an incident on June 25, 2002, when the passenger gangway collapsed at the terminal in Yarmouth just as the high-speed ferry from Maine was being unloaded. Three workers who were preparing to attach the gangway to the ferry were injured when they fell, crashing 10 meters to the ground. Because of the injuries, the company must also pay more than $11,000 in victim fine surcharges. Source: CBC News
