Charges in oilsands deaths not enough, says labour group

The president of the Alberta Federation of Labour says the dozens of charges laid Tuesday in the deaths of two foreign workers aren't enough.
Gil McGowan says while the charges are unprecedented, it's taken far too long for them to be laid.

And, he says the government still needs to put tighter restrictions on international companies who don't have experience in Canadian construction standards.

Three companies face a total of 53 charges in the deaths of two temporary Chinese workers at an Oilsands project near Fort McMurray two years ago.
