Back to all news

The OPFFA obtained two separate Judgments against two fire fighters, Paul Atkinson and Colin Grieve, who improperly used their positions on the OPFFA’s Occupation Disease Committee, to defraud the estates and widows of deceased fire fighters and steal millions of dollars in donations intended for the OPFFA. The OPFFA was represented by Rahool Agarwal, Niklas Holmberg and Crystal Li. The two judgments can be accessed here: Judgment of Diamond J., issued October 27, 2021, Judgment of Diamond J., signed April 6, 2021.
