Mill explosion victim's wife happy to have a separate inquest

The wife of one of the men killed in the Babine Mill explosion is relieved that a separate inquest will take place.
The BC’s Chief Coroner has decided to look into the circumstances that lead to the explosion at the Lakeland Mills in Prince George and the one in Burns Lake independently from one another.
Maureen Luggi is hoping this will give the community the closure it needs.
“I’m just very happy that the chief coroner has listened to the leaders and members of the families,” she says. “I really appreciate that she has made the time to listen to both sides and she has chosen to honour our community and allow our community to heal from this tragedy.”
Her husband Robert and Carl Charlie were both killed when the mill exploded in January 2012. Twenty other workers were also injured. The inquest is schedule for July.
