Une enquête est actuellement en cours, afin de faire la lumière sur ce drame.

Regardless of the results of this investigation, the statements heard are unacceptable and intolerable."\nDuring a press conference on Tuesday, Premier François Legault told the public that one of the nurses involved had been fired.\n\n#JusticeForJoyce has been trending on social media \nHow utterly heartbreaking/disgusting to see this happened.
