Legal Proceedings

Bloor Street Incident

EGD had been charged under both the Ontario Technical Standards and Safety Act (TSSA) and the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) in connection with an explosion that occurred on Bloor Street West in Toronto on April 24, 2003. On October 25, 2007, all of the TSSA and OHSA charges laid against EGD were dismissed by the Ontario Court of Justice. The decision has been appealed by the Crown to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The appeal is scheduled to be heard by the Court during November 2009. The maximum possible fine upon conviction would not result in any material financial impact on EGD.

EGD has also been named as a defendant in a number of civil actions related to the explosion. All significant civil actions have been settled without any material financial impact on EGD. A Coroner's Inquest in connection with the explosion is also possible.
