Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

GATINEAU, QUE. — A girl who is not yet two months old is in crit­i­cal con­di­tion in an Ot­tawa hos­pi­tal af­ter al­legedly be­ing shaken by her fa­ther. The 25-year-old Que­bec man was charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault when he ap­peared in a court­room this af­ter­noon in the western Que­bec town of Gatineau. He was ar­rested on Wed­nes­day in Thurso shortly af­ter the girl was taken to hos­pi­tal. The Crown op­posed the man’s re­lease and he will re­main be­hind bars at least un­til the case re­sumes Mon­day. His lawyer says his client has no crim­i­nal past.
