Beaconsfield bureaucrat who was attacked is back at work


A Beaconsfield civil servant who was viciously attacked last fall in Vaudreuil-Dorion returned to work at city hall recently after a lengthy leave of absence.

Denis Chabot, Beaconsfield’s director of urban planning and municipal patrol, had gone on a leave of absence to recover from injuries he suffered as a result of a daytime attack in early October.

Sûreté du Québec officers confirm there is an investigation into the Oct. 5 assault, which took place in the parking lot of the Sum-merlea Golf Club.

They had labelled it a case of intimidation levied by two male suspects in their mid-20s.

No arrests in the incident have been made yet, SQ spokeswoman Joyce Kemp said Monday.

Mayor David Pollock said police have not indicated to city officials one way or another if the attack on Chabot was in any way related to his duties as director of urban planning. “The police are still doing their investigation,” he added.

As for Chabot, he declined to comment on the incident.

“All I can tell you is that I’m happy to be back,” he said Tuesday.
