Member of Ragnarok Skinheads Has Died

It's been a few years since we last looked at the Quebec-based Ragnarok Skinheads, but it would appear they have lost a member.

Joel Gauthier apparently passed away during the evening of March 15. Thus far no details about the circumstances behind his death though it was described by a friend raising money for Gauthier's family as both unexpected and a tragedy while at the same time noting that he didn't want to provide too many details concerning the death as, "some of it [the details] is quite sensitive."

Though she made those statements long before becoming a candidate in the Gouin riding, in an interview published in La Presse Thursday, Mailloux said she "absolutely" stands by them.

When asked about Mailloux's views, Marois praised the candidate's academic credentials....
