Families of victims in Elliot Lake mall collapse file suit, claim negligence


TORONTO – Relatives of two women killed when a mall roof collapsed in Elliot Lake, Ont., are suing the mall owner, the provincial government and others.

The suit by the families of Doloris Perizzolo and Lucie Aylwin seeks millions in punitive and general damages.

Also named are the city and engineers who said the Algo Center Mall was safe.

In June, part of the mall’s roof caved in, killing the two women and injuring several others.

The suit alleges there were known safety issues with the building that were ignored.

None of the allegations has been proven in any court.
