L'ISLE-VERTE, Que. - The mayor of a town devastated by a fire that ravaged a local seniors' residence, killing 14 people, says she'll be glad when the national media get out of town.
"L'Isle-Verte will be better off without journalists," Mayor Ursule Theriault told local reporters on Monday.
The comments were echoed by her deputy mayor, Ginette Caron, who said relatives of the dead were being pestered for comments.
"Lock your doors, stop responding," she said in comments reported on infodimanche.com.
