Bereaved father asks for support
Over the weekend in Drummondville, Patrick Desautels held a big sale of seedlings from his tree nursery in Ste. Christine. He held the sale since he's been incapable of working since December. Desautels' three children were killed just before Christmas, and their mother has been charged in their deaths.
Patrick Desautels says he needs money to carry on, and he's received little support from the government's compensation program for victims of crime. Quebec City lawyer Marc Bellemare is representing him, and tells us why that is.
