There has been a proposed settlement reached in the class action lawsuit in the Sunrise Propane explosion in North York.

That blast in the early morning hours of August 10th back in 2008, killed one employee of the propane company.

The 23 million dollar out-of-court settlement would end all legal action against Sunrise Propane, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority and Tesky Companies.

65 hundred claimants have signed up for the class-action suit, and the estimated payouts wouldn't be incredibly large amounts.

For example,  people displaced from their homes would receive 200 dollars for the first day and then 50 dollars each day after.

Those injured in the explosion would get anywhere between 50 dollars and 50 thousand dollars depending on the severity of their injuries.

Insurance deductibles will be paid and there will be the option for those without insurance to claim property damaged by the blast.

This is not yet a done deal though, with the settlement still needing approval by the judge in the case.

And the claimants will also have a say, with town hall meetings to be held at the Northwood Community Centre, on Clubhouse Court in the Sheppard and Sentinel Road area.

There will be three meetings on July 15th, 16th and 29th, all starting at 7pm.

There will also be an approval hearing on August 7th.
