Lévis Mayor Gilles Lehouillier receives death threat

Lévis (Quebec) 9 January 2015 – The Mayor of Lévis, Gilles Lehouillier, received a death threat in his mailbox recently from an upset citizen who has a personal grievance against the mayor. Because of the letter, Mayor Lehouillier has been granted special security protection until the author of the threat can be found.

The mayor and his colleagues will not comment any further on the contents of the letter other than to say that it contains insults and a death threat.

The police are investigating the matter and until a suspect is apprehended no comments will be made public in order to aid the police in their inquiry. It is known however, that the presumed suspect has some strong complaints against the mayor and the city itself.

M. Lehouillier is at home these days and will have police protection for his business outside the home and up until and during his return to his office at Lévis City Hall.

The Lévis police force (SPVL) is asking anyone who has information related to the case to come forward to help in their investigation.

Citizens can call the 9-1-1 line or TEL-LIEN (418-835-5436) to give information.

Their names and information will be kept strictly confidential as usual.
