Infanticides in Brossard and Laval: the Youth Rights Commission will investigate
The Commission wants to s ensure that children's right to protection is not violated.
In the wake of two murders of children committed in Laval and Brossard, in the Montreal region, the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse announces the holding of two investigations.
In a brief press release, the Commission says it relies on the Youth Protection Act to affirm that violations of certain rights may have been committed.
This would mean that the rights of these children would not have been guaranteed before these tragedies occurred, especially if the Department of Youth Protection did not intervene to protect them when their safety or development was threatened.
The Commission also wishes, through its investigations, to ensure that measures are taken to ensure that this situation does not recur.
These investigations will not be public and only recommendations of a systemic nature may be disclosed if necessary.
