If everything stays on track, a supervisor facing provincial charges connected to a Belleville house explosion last October, could see a trial in the spring.
A supervisor with Cobourg Development Services was charged by the Ministry of Labour, with failing to take reasonable precautions for the protection of workers, after construction crews hit a gas line on Moira Street West, which caused an explosion that totaled a house beside the site.
A Ministry Spokesperson tells Quinte News, a two-day trial has been tentatively set for March 9th and 10th, at the Quinte Consolidated Courthouse, in Belleville.
But prior to that, a confirmation hearing will be held on January 24 to make sure both sides are prepared for the upcoming proceedings and if they aren’t, the trial dates could change.
While no major injuries were reported the day of the explosion, the homeowner had to be rescued by a police officer and a construction worker, just before his house went up in flames.
