Kirkland Lake Car Dealer Fined By The Province

 

A Kirkland Lake auto dealer has been hit with a huge fine over an accident in the service area a couple of years ago that critically injured two employees.

The incident happened at Lakeshore Motors where on February 21st 2017 a car on a hoist fell about 6 feet to the ground injuring the employees.

Ministry inspectors looked into it and determined the hoist was faulty.

Upon further inspection they determined other hoists in the service area were also faulty.

They accused Lakeshore of not providing proper information, instruction, and supervision to employees.

Earlier this month the company was convicted, and  fined 45 thousand dollars by the province.
