Abstract (Document Summary)

The Metro Toronto Zoo has been fined $43,000 in connection with a 1994 monorail train crash in its Canadian Animal Domain that left 27 people injured.

The zoo pleaded not guilty to a single charge of violating the Occupational Health and Safety Act but presented no evidence, said Toby Styles, the zoo's executive director of marketing and communications.
