It is the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse (CDPDJ) which will examine the circumstances surrounding this tragedy.
TVA Nouvelles has obtained confirmation that reports had been made to the authorities as well as to the Directorate of Youth Protection (DPJ) before the tragedy.
On the night of Saturday to Sunday, Michaël Chicoine, 30, went on his own to the Police Department of Quebec City (SPVQ).
The police then went to rue du Chef Nicolas-Vincent in Wendake in the light of information provided by Chicoine. Two small bodies, those of two boys aged 2 and 5, were discovered there in a residence.
Michaël Chicoine, whose publication ban prohibits saying what is the link with the boys, was formally charged with unpremeditated double murder at the Quebec City courthouse yesterday.
The suspect underwent a medical evaluation at a hospital over the weekend. “Given the comments made by my client, the police thought it prudent to have him hospitalized to validate certain things that could have had an impact on his health”, explained his lawyer, Me Gagnon, at Journal of Quebec.
Chicoine will return to court in November for further legal proceedings.
