in local manufacturing plants and

have a line of command such that no one can be blamed for wrong doing.

i worked at the goreway cogen project for 2 years...

...SNC Lavalin, were the general contractors.

there was an incident,

where a crane touched a live transmission line,

that almost killed 5 workers.

Hydro one, came to the work site, and

asked what happened. SNC Lavalin, lied, and

pretended that the accident never occurred.

the Ministry of Labour, followed through with their investigation, and

after they could not blame the workers,

allowed the company to continue to put workers in harms way.

2 months after that near miss,

the same contractor(SNC Lavalin),

a worker was killed at the portlands project.
