marine regulations are merely guidelines and they're not a legal requirement.
He says the judge's definition of criminal negligence did not reflect recent decisions on the issue from other courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada.

Interesting, where does that come from? Is it from the Food Inspection scandal or the rail accident I wonder....
