Rémy Nolet search called off in Chambly Basin

The search has been called off for Rémy Nolet, the 19-year-old man who fell into the frigid waters of the Chambly Basin when his canoe capsized last Monday.

Police in Richelieu—St-Laurent made the decision Monday morning, after divers were unable to find Nolet over the past week. 

​The teen's best friend, 17-year-old Catherine Desautels, was able to make it to safety after a harrowing two hours in the rough, cold water.

Police didn't rule out the possibility of picking up the search for Nolet again at a later date.
