François Legault: “It is infinitely sad. No parent should have to bury their child”
Quebec Premier François Legault has visited the site in St-Michel where 16-year-old Thomas Trudel was shot and killed on Sunday. Legault expressed his condolences, highlighting the grief of the family due to the loss of their child.

“I went to meditate at the place where the young Thomas Trudel, 16, was shot dead. I am speechless. It is infinitely sad. I offer my deepest condolences to his loved ones and his family. No parent should bury their child. It is against nature.”
