Gavel

The Port of Dalhousie has been given more time to pay a fine it received as a result of a workplace death in 2016.

The port pleaded guilty to a pair of charges under the Canada Labour Code and was fined $75,000 in May.

It had planned to pay the fine by auctioning off some of its equipment, however requested more time to pay as the auction had not yet taken place.

The Tribune reports that's expected to happen in the next few weeks.

The judge gave the Port until January 27th to pay.
