The family of a Val-des-Monts homicide victim says she was shot in the home she rented from a retired RCMP officer.

Ginette Labelle said her sister, Céline Labelle, a mother of two adult children, was shot and killed on Sunday.

“She had no insurance and no money,” Ginette Labelle said in a GoFundMe post that seeks to raise money for her sister’s children so that they can pay for her funeral, cover her debts, and possibly, hire a lawyer.

“Her daughters, in their 20s, are working hard while going to college to get a good-paying job,” said Labelle. “They have student loans and their apartments to pay … My sister’s daughters have been through a lot, worked hard to be where they are, and deserve a break.”

Mercier was an accomplished trap shooter, winning championships at the both provincial and national levels, and served as a coach for the Canadian shooting team.

Court records show that Mercier had been in a rent dispute with his Mercier Street tenants for the past month. In January, he asked Quebec’s housing board to terminate their lease and award him damages and unpaid rent monies. The case was to be heard in late February.

Under Quebec law, a landlord has the right to terminate a lease if tenants are more three weeks late in paying their rent.

Records also show that Dupuis and Labelle had previously been involved in landlord and tenant disputes, most recently in 2017 when the housing board awarded their Saint-Jérôme landlord $1,750 in back rent.

Dupuis, he said, knew Quebec’s rental housing laws inside out, and was not afraid to exercise his rights when he was a tenant.

“Pierre had a way of dealing with properties that were not properly maintained,” he said. “He was a very smart man. He knew the Quebec laws when it came to renting, and stuff like that.

“If there were issues, he would bring them up to the landlord. And if the landlord wouldn’t fix them, he wouldn’t pay the rent. He was following the law.”
