OTTAWA, July 16, 2013 /CNW/ - The following is a statement in response
to the charges laid by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority
(TSSA) today against Calypso Theme Waterpark.
Guy Drouin, owner and operator of Calypso Theme Waterpark: "Calypso
management is strongly committed to the safety of its visitors and has
always worked diligently with the TSSA to ensure best practices are
applied. My staff and I have worked closely with TSSA since these
issues were first raised two years ago."
"That I was meeting with the Agency as recently as last month with no
outstanding concerns raised and then to have these charges laid is very
disappointing," Drouin added.
"Calypso is recognized as the award-winning world leader in water theme
amusement parks and has an enviable record and reputation that it will
defend if necessary," said Drouin.
Calypso's lawyer Lawrence Greenspon said: "The laying of these 20
charges is a surprising abuse of power. All of these
allegations have been addressed to ensure the public's safety. They are
already the subject of another process with the same Ministry
responsible for TSSA.
