As regular readers will know, Metron Construction Corporation became the first corporation in Ontario to be convicted under the Criminal Code, as amended by Bill C-45 in 2004, after a June 15, 2012, guilty plea to a charge of criminal negligence causing death following a workplace accident. 

Yesterday, the Ontario Court of Appeal reserved judgment in the Crown’s appeal of the $200,000 sentence imposed on Metron in relation to that historic guilty plea. We will continue to monitor the case and report when the Court of Appeal renders its decision.
