Sunrise Propane Sentencing Put Over Until March

Sentencing has been put over until March 12th for 2008 blast that left two dead.

An Ontario company convicted in a deadly explosion of a Toronto propane plant will have to wait until March 12th to find out its fate.
Sunrise Propane and directors Shay Ben-Moshe and Valery Belahov were found guilty in June of nine provincial offences related to the 2008 blast that killed one man and forced thousands of people from their homes.
Twenty-five year old employee Parminder Saini died in the blast and a 55-year old firefighter who responded to the emergency on his day off, died of a heart attack.
The court ruled that Sunrise failed to provide safety training and a safe working environment, discharged a contaminant, and contravened a number of provincial orders related to the cleanup after the blast.
The court also found that Ben-Moshe and Belahov failed to take all reasonable care to prevent the company from flouting those orders.
Following the blast, the government shut down all three of Sunrise Propane's facilities.

It's not clear why the sentencing hearing had been postponed.
