3 stop work orders lifted from Waterloo construction site
Inspector revisited construction site Wednesday
The Ontario Ministry of Labour says it has removed three stop work orders at the high-rise site where 23-year-old construction worker Nick Lalonde fell to his death last Friday.
Ministry spokesperson Matt Blajer says Maison Canada, the Waterloo property rental company which manages the site, can allow construction to proceed on ten floors of the site but some restrictions remain in place.
“Maison Canada was also authorized to access the 11th floor and above, but simply for the purpose of complying with the orders that pertain to those upper portions of the project.”
A funeral for Lalonde, who was installing masonry block on the 12th floor of the building when he fell, was held in London today.
The ministry says its investigation into his death is ongoing.
