Duceppe family sues seniors’ residence

Gilles Duceppe’s family is suing east-end seniors’ residence Lux Gouverneur for $1.25 million over the death by exposure of Duceppe’s mother a year ago. Hélène Rowley Hotte died on a very cold night after an aborted fire alarm at the home. She was found dead outside the building the next morning, evidently having been unable to get back inside.
