CBC Reports: A lawyer for Aecon Construction Inc. has argued that an occupational health and safety charge should be stayed because the case has gone over the time limit set by the Supreme Court of Canada.

The case involves an incident at Dalhousie University in September 2013. A steel beam fell on a 40-year-old worker who was left with a spinal cord injury. He now uses a wheelchair.

Aecon was charged in April 2015 with four workplace safety violations. Three charges have been dismissed, leaving one charge on the books — that Aecon failed to take every reasonable precaution to ensure the health and safety of a person at a workplace.
