The families of two men killed in a Burns Lake sawmill explosion have started a fundraising campaign to help them hire a lawyer.
Carl Charlie and Robert Luggi Junior died in the January, 2012 blast that destroyed Babine Forest Products.
An inquest into the sawmill explosion is scheduled to start in a couple of months, but the Charlie and Luggi families worry that without their own independent legal counsel, their voices won’t be heard.
They say written requests to Premier Christy Clark asking for government assistance with legal costs at the inquest were turned down.
The Charlie and Luggi families say they want to ensure their legal interests are protected and that the right questions are asked.
They’re hoping to raise $50,000 through a GoFundMe campaign.
The BC Coroners Service inquest into the Babine Forest Products explosion is scheduled to begin July 13 in Burns Lake.
