Charges have been stayed against three companies following the stage collapse at the Big Valley Jamboree.
The Crown says there’s no reasonable chance for conviction for three companies — Panhandle Productions, Global Production Company, and a numbered Alberta company.
High winds kicked up without warning at the popular music festival back in 2009, causing the stage to collapse.
Lloydminster resident Donna Moore was killed, and several others were injured. The 35-year-old single mother was crushed by falling scaffolding and large speakers, while sitting near the stage. There is an ongoing lawsuit on behalf of Moore’s children.
