Several citizens interviewed by TVA Nouvelles expressed their dismay at the allegations against the Quebec doctor.

“It’s supernatural for me to run after old people so helplessly. It’s ridiculous,” says one man.

“I’m being treated there. [à l’Hôpital d’Hawkesbury]so it’s a bit worrying, it’s worrying,” admits another citizen.

“A few years ago I was in the emergency room for bronchitis. He was the one who took care of me. […] This is really proof that there is no picture. He seemed like a good doctor. It’s overwhelming,” admits a former patient.

The Ontario Provincial Police announced on Wednesday that they have arrested Dr. Nadler in connection with the murders of three women: Claire Brière, 80, from Rigaud; Lorraine Lalande, 79, of Hawkesbury and Judith Lungulescu, 93, of East Hawkesbury Parish.

Brian Nadler, 35, lives in Dollard-des-Ormeaux on Montreal’s West Island.

He was first arrested in late March 2021 in connection with the death of Albert Poidinger, which took place at Hawkesbury General Hospital on March 25, 2021.

Ontario authorities added that the doctor may have had other victims and that the investigation is ongoing.
