Victims of sexual abuse committed by Brothers of Sacred Heart at Collège Mont Sacré-Coeur
Kugler Kandestin files class action seeking compensatory damages, as well as $15 million in punitive and exemplary damages.
The class action seeks to enable access to justice for victims of sexual abuse during their childhood, by religious members of the Brothers of Sacred Heart associated with Collège Mont-Sacré-Coeur in Granby. The class action alleges that the reprehensible and unacceptable sexual abuse was perpetrated systematically for several decades by at least 18 religious Brothers.
The class action was filed following a judgment of the Superior Court of Québec dated November 23, 2017 authorizing the application for authorization to file a class action.
