An Ontario Superior Court justice has approved a $23 million settlement in the Sunrise Propane explosion lawsuit. The class action suit was launched by North York residents affected by explosions at the Sunrise Propane installation in 2008. One man was killed, another, a fire fighter died of a heart attack at the scene, and thousands of people were displaced by the explosions. Approximately 6,500 residents in the area within Keele St., Dufferin St., Highway 401 and Sheppard Ave will share in the $23 million dollar settlement.
