… again and again for this corporation of incompetents.
You won’t be surprised to hear of another ‘accident’ in NextEra’s Jericho project located in Lambton Shores . This time it was an excavator in the ditch on Thomson Line, west of Arkona Road. It is becoming a common occurrence while driving home from work to come across NextEra’s mishaps, which is why I never leave home without with my ipad!
The roll-over must have just occurred as only the operator and another worker were present. When I approached the overturned vehicle to take pictures, the operator said to me, “Stuff happens.” Unfortunately for our community this type of occurrence seems to be happening all too often. It looked like the wheels of the machine got too close to the soft edge of the ditch which gave way causing the excavator to roll. I asked the workers if they were okay and both said yes. When I was departing I passed several construction vehicles speeding towards the accident to quickly cover-up, er, clean up the mess.
Why is this happening so often? Who is monitoring the frequency of accidents in this project and others? Is NextEra using unqualified and/or inexperienced operators in their efforts to complete projects in record breaking time, so the profits can begin to flow in sooner?
What will the next time bring? Injuries to workers or a community member? Damage to private property?
There seems to be no end to this nightmare for rural Ontario.
