Local engineer charged

Local engineer Robert Wood, of M.R. Wright and Associates in Sault Ste. Marie, has been charged under the Occupational Health and Safety Act in connection with the Elliot Lake mall collapse last June.

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has not yet made public the specific charges.

According to media reports, Wood and another person inspected the mall not long before the failure and declared the building structurally sound.
