Federal prosecutors have “stayed”—that is, essentially dismissed—charges against Mistras Canada Inc. under the Nuclear Safety and Control Act for the improper handling, storage and transport of a nuclear substance. The charges were based on the exposure of  two truck drivers to a radiation level above a limit set for the public by a device used for pipeline imaging. But there was no indication that anyone got sick as a result.
