    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
