HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s Department of Labour has confirmed that a dump truck pulled from the Halifax harbour on Wednesday is related to its investigation into a fatal workplace incident.

The truck was removed from the water at the Fairview Cove Sequestration Facility on Africville Road, which the Port of Halifax says is an approved location for the disposal of pyritic slate.

A man’s body was recovered from under the MacKay Bridge on Monday.

The Department of Labour confirms that the truck went into the water during the incident, but would not elaborate.

A stop-work order was issued for the company operating at the site, Scotiascapes Landscaping.
