MONTREAL, June 15 /CNW Telbec/ - On June 12, 2009, Mrs Marianne Tonnelier
filed a Motion in the Quebec Superior Court, District of Montreal, to be
authorized to exercise a class action against the Quebec Government.
The class is defined as follows :
All women who were diagnosed with breast cancer in Québec and for whom
the result of the test for the biological marker HER-2 or the test for
hormonal receptors is negative.
The proceeding alleges that the Quebec Government was negligent and
reckless by tolerating obvious shortcomings in the procedures used to
ascertain which treatment is appropriate following a diagnosis of breast
cancer. For several years, the Quebec Government was aware of the problem and
yet did nothing to correct the situation. This fault has caused significant
damages to thousands of women who are fighting against breast cancer and who
are now uncertain whether the treatment they have been prescribed is
Madame Marianne Tonnelier will ask the Court to order the Government to
compensate the victims of this unacceptable situation, a claim that could
total several million dollars.
