Jack Morriseau, a supervisor of Penny Lynn Holdings Ltd. pleaded guilty to one count under The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 for failure to ensure that workers under his direction comply with The Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 and its associated regulations.  Morriseau was fined $400 in Regina Provincial Court on October 7, 2013.
