Martin Carpentier, on the run for four days and still being sought Sunday by police officers of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), was host scout.
Norah, 11 years old, the oldest of the girls, was a Cub scout, and Romy, 6 years, was about to join Beavers, we learn by consulting the page Facebook of the Scout Group 128 of Charny where the comments of sympathy are flowing in.
“Having lost a daughter, we know at what point the pain is great… Know that all our prayers in scouting and our thoughts will be turned towards the family in this period extremely difficult!” commented one facilitator from another group.
Another adult member of the movement is part of his sentence.
“The big “love” and support for his entire family for scout! says a moderator from the 23rd St-Eugene, Trois-Rivières, and having children in every branch, and who was also the moderator of Cédrika Provencher at the time of his disappearance… I imagine the tidal wave you through. I send you a mega dose of love!”
“Courage to the mom and the family scout. All our thoughts go out to you”, wrote, on his side, the scout Group of Cape-Red.
“The sea scouts of Montréal-Nord mourn with you this evening. Hold on!” left as a message, Marc-André Longpré.
Martin Carpentier and Norah in a video
Like many other organizations in Quebec, the Scout Group 128 of Charny had produced, during the confinement in the spring, a small video to support its members.
On the pictures, we see Martin Carpentier alongside Norah in a short sequence of 13 seconds.
“Hi everyone! We wanted to tell you that our Wednesday and your good mood we are missing and then, in the meantime, it keeps the moral, it is not loose, not continue,” says Martin Carpentier.
“Maybe keep hope that we can redo a minicamp this summer,” slips off his side of Norah.
The grouping scout has organized the vigil as a tribute to the girls on Saturday night. The place of worship will remain in place for a few days.
