Fourth Canadian Soldier in Week Dead in Apparent Suicide
— A fourth Canadian soldier in a week has died in an apparent suicide.
The body of Master Cpl. Sylvain Lelièvre, 46, was discovered at CFB Valcartier on Monday.
Lelièvre was a member of the Royal 22e Regiment (the “VanDoos”) who served in Bosnia and Afghanistan.
An investigation continues.
Another soldier told Canadian Press that the moment the Canadian military told him in November he was being discharged because of his post-traumatic stress disorder, he felt his live was over and he attempted suicide.
