In case you missed it, here's what happened in Montreal on Sept. 14

A look at the day’s events in and around Montreal:

Montreal police reopen investigation into death of Inuit woman

Montreal police have reopened an investigation into the death of Siasi Tullaugak, which had initially been ruled a suicide.

Tullaugak, 27, was found hanging from the balcony of a Chomedey St. apartment on the morning of Aug. 28. At first, police said she took her own life, but a series of new developments in the case suggests there may have been foul play.

The Montreal Gazette has learned that detectives began interviewing people close to Tullaugak Wednesday in hopes of retracing the final hours of her life.

A police spokesperson confirmed that investigators are pursuing “new information” in the case.

One of the last people to see Tullaugak alive was a man who several sources say coerces women into sex work.

Montreal cops arrest five in probe of overdose deaths

An investigation into the overdose deaths of two men in downtown Montreal in August led to eight police raids Wednesday that saw five suspects arrested and the seizure of drugs and cash.

The suspects were picked up during raids conducted on four residences and four vehicles in Laval and east-end Montreal.

Police also seized quantities of heroin, opioids, marijuana and amphetamines as well as more than $20,000 in Canadian and American currency.

Free antidote plan for fentanyl overdoses doesn’t go far enough, crisis workers say

As the fentanyl crisis slinks into Montreal, harm-reduction workers say giving drug users the antidote for free is compelling but not enough to counter the devastating effects of addiction.

Their message came as Canada’s chief public health officer warned Thursday of a growing epidemic — 2,816 deaths from drug overdoses in 2016 — with the number of dying “sadly adjusted upwards” and expected to surpass 3,000 this year.

Deaths involving fentanyl more than doubled in the first three months of 2017 compared with the year-earlier period, Theresa Tam said in a media briefing from Ottawa. While the western provinces have been hit the hardest, no one province is safe, Tam said, because the rates in the eastern provinces are rising.

“It’s a national crisis,” Tam said of illicit drugs laced with fentanyl fuelling the overdose epidemic.
