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.
