CALGARY — Two construction companies have been fined in the death of a little girl who was hit by debris from a Calgary worksite.
Germain Residences of Quebec City and subcontractor Flynn Canada must pay $15,000 after pleading guilty to Alberta safety code violations.
A charge against a third company was withdrawn.
Michelle Krsek was three when she was struck and killed by falling construction material in downtown Calgary in August 2009.
She and her family were taking relatives from Romania to see the Calgary Tower when a violent windstorm hit.
The Crown says the companies did not properly secure a stack of roofing material.
