Gilles Duceppe’s mom -93 yr old politician’s mom dies of hypothermia
This particular death may cause waves. Year after year, the govt has been cutting funds for health and disabilities in Canada. And this time they got caught with their pants down. Because this time, it wasn’t a nameless, faceless person no one cared about who died. Frozen and alone.
7 hours outside alone, in -20 Celsius (0 is freezing) which is -4 Fahrenheit (32 is freezing) weather before they found she was missing and her body was located. After a fire alarm had gone off.
The Minister for Seniors is calling for a coroner’s inquest.
Because all it would have taken to save this life… was a head count.
… who died? A politician’s mother
