Charges recommended at Prince George

Mar. 3, 2014 - Worksafe BC has recommended charges be laid in connection with the fatal explosion at a Prince George sawmill in April 2012. The explosion at Lakeland Mills killed 43 year-old Alan Little and 46 year-old Glenn Roche and occured shortly after a similar explosion in Burns Lake.

Similar charges were also recommended after the Burns Lake incident but the charges were dropped after the Crown determined the investigation was flawed.
