Not just one conviction for unsafe operations, FOUR CONVICTIONS...

Vrancor Development Corp. was fined $65,000 for operating an unsafe job site during construction in 2009 of the $15-million Hampton Inn by Hilton on McKeown Avenue.

Vrancor has three previous convictions under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act for operating other unsafe job sites in the province, including inadequate guardrails during construction of another North Bay hotel, Holiday Inn Express and Suites on Seymour Street, in 2007.

Justice of the Peace James Bubba found Vrancor and site supervisor Sean Kehoe liable for failing to comply with an inspector's order to keep the McKeown Avenue site free of obstructions, including heating equipment and other construction materials embedded in ice.
