Tom Gaglardi broke federal environmental laws while renovating his waterfront Kamloops Lake vacation home in 2010, a judge has ruled. The 47-year-old owner of the Kamloops Blazers and the NHL’s Dallas Stars, who is also the head of Northland Properties, was found guilty in Kamloops provincial court on Thursday, Aug. 7, of two counts of harmful alteration of a fish habitat. Northland was also convicted on the same charges, while Robert Gaglardi, Tom’s father, was found not guilty. At trial earlier this year, court heard the Gaglardi family home — known as “Tom’s Shack,” according to several Crown witnesses — was undergoing extensive renovations in 2010. The charges stem from riprap destroyed by workers taking orders from Gaglardi in the construction of a boat ramp.
