    The investigation of the Sûreté du Québec, continued on Tuesday in Princeville to find the people responsible for the fire at the restaurant Princess.

    The SQ is now seeking the assistance of the public.

    War between restaurateurs, ex-employee seeking revenge, or simply an unbalanced individual; all hypotheses are considered to explain the two fires that occurred in the interval of two months at the restaurant Princess. Before rebuilding, the owners will have to wait until the answer.

    Bruno Lamontagne, his daughter Sharina and her son Jonathan live in uncertainty. Mr. Lamontagne is the owner of the restaurant Princess on the boulevard Baril ouest in Princeville for 30 years. And his children are wondering who can blame them at this point.

    In the night of 23 to 24 December, a fire completely destroyed their restaurant, an institution in Princeville since 1967.

    Two months earlier, a first fire had caused $ 200,000 in damage. In both cases, we used Molotov cocktails.

    After weeks of hard work, the family Lamontagne had managed to reopen the settlement on 18 December. We offered the service at the counter and on delivery.

    Unfortunately, six days later, occurred the second fire.

    The owners could not have been the subject of any threat in the prior, they seek to understand the motivations behind these actions.

    Crime stoppers offers a reward of $ 2000 to anyone who will provide information that will help to stop the person or persons responsible.

    The public is invited to communicate this information in confidence: 1 800 711-1800.
