A Drayton Valley used oil storage and recycling facility and one of its directors have been ordered to pay tens of thousands of dollars in fines stemming from an incident of interfering with an inspector or investigator. 

Tryon’s Auto Body Ltd. was fined $30,000 in addition to Jonah Tryon being fined $10,000 and placed on probation for one year.

Charges against a second director, Cathy Tryon, were dismissed.

Both Tryons as well as Tryon’s Auto Body Ltd. were charged under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act with interfering with Alberta Environment and Parks inspectors or investigators who were exercising their powers or carrying out duties under the act.

The offence occurred between July 7, 2016 and Aug. 30, 2016.
