- Quebec City protest against Liberals' budget declared illegal
A letter delivered by Naomie Tremblay-Trudeau's lawyer asks Quebec City police for an apology and for damages.
Tremblay-Trudeau's lawyer, Marc Lemaire, said he hopes they can reach a settlement rather than filing a lawsuit.
A video of police shooting Tremblay-Trudeau surfaced after a budget-day protest in Quebec City on March 26, 2015.
The 18-year-old CEGEP student suffered injuries to her face and was taken to hospital.
"I was gasping for air… I lost consciousness," she said in an interview with CBC News.
Shortly after, her family said it would seek legal recourse.
