    A Sikh temple and 18 of its volunteer board members
    have been fined $14,030 after pleading guilty to several
    charges under the Public Health Act.

    The infractions, including unsanitary conditions, improper
    storage of food and improper training of volunteer workers,
    were related to the northeast Dashmesh Cultural Centre
    and the community's annual Vaisakhi Nagar Kirtan Sikh
    parade, dating back to 1998.

    Provincial court Judge Judith Shriar fined the centre $7,475,
    former president Mohinder Singh Deol $4,600 and 17
    others $115 each, after accepting a joint submission
    by Alberta Health Services prosecutor Rob O'Neill and
    defence lawyer Jennifer Blanchard.

    O'Neill, noting 46 people were sent to hospital with food-borne
    illnesses following a previous function, said the fines would
    likely have been significantly higher if he were dealing with
    a for-profit organization.
