Dakelh Territory, Prince George, B.C. – The Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC) is disappointed to learn that no one will be accountable for the explosion in 2012 that killed Lake Babine First Nation member Carl Charlie and Stellat’en First Nation member Robert Luggi Jr. (Stellat’en is a member of the CSTC).  The two victims were among many other workers who suffered injuries at the Babine Forest Products Sawmill accident that was deemed preventable by WorkSafe BC.  On January 10, BC Crown Counsel released its Clear Statement that no charges will be approved against Babine Forest Products (BFP).  After a two year investigation the families of those who lost loved ones, or were injured, while on the job, are left wondering if there will be any justice and assurances that such an accident will never happen again.
