Gagné had just left the CHUL hospital in Sainte-Foy when she was hit. Her baby was successfully delivered, but Gagné later died of her injuries.

HALIFAX — Two special constables with the Halifax police force have been found guilty of criminal negligence causing the death of an impaired inmate who suffocated in his jail cell after being left with a spit hood over his face.

Judge Pierre L. Rousseau concluded that the young man should never have taken the wheel that day as he had been thoroughly warned — even that very morning — not to drive.

The Quebec City courthouse was packed with an audience that included members Gagné's family, but the chamber remained silent as the verdict was read aloud on Wednesday morning.

In his ruling, Rousseau said Falardeau-Laroche's defence failed to prove he was not sufficiently warned about the dangers of driving with epilepsy. 

During the trial, Falardeau-Laroche's neurologist testified that he had told his patient at least seven times, from the time Falardeau-Laroche was 13 years old, that he should not drive.

Trudeau says he would look at ways to improve medical assistance in dying law

  Trudeau says he would look at ways to improve medical assistance in dying law MONTREAL — Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says that, if re-elected, he would expand Canadians' eligibility for medically assisted dying with legislation that comes into line with a recent court ruling. "When it comes to an issue that is so important, so delicate, so difficult for so many families, the government needs to make sure we're getting the balance right," Trudeau said Thursday. A Quebec Superior Court judge invalidated sections of the federal and Quebec laws on medically assisted dying last month, ruling that they were too restrictive and therefore unconstitutional.

The defence had argued that the neurologist was not clear in his discussion with Falardeau-Laroche and that his testimony was an effort to protect his reputation.

Rousseau made note that Falardeau-Laroche had not told his doctor about another collision he had been in just eight months before Gagné was killed. The judge said Falardeau-Laroche lied in an effort to keep his driver's license.

Falardeau-Laroche's colleagues had also warned him not to drive.

"The accused's reaction to the advice of his colleagues speaks volumes about his carelessness, which I see as highly reckless or out of touch with the safety of others," Rousseau wrote in his ruling.

Falardeau-Laroche is expected to be sentenced in December. Under Canadian law, he could be handed a life sentence.
