Denise Courtemanche , mother of Andre Courtemanche. This is Mental health week in Canada, and to remember their 16 year old son, a Langford family is encouraging people to take part in "Andre's Walk for Hope" -- a 10-K walk to raise funds and awareness for youth mental health. Andre Courtemanche suffered from anxiety and depression. He went missing on New Year's Day 2020, and his body was found 8 days later underneath the Niagara Trestle in Goldstream park. Denise says funds raised will help establish a "Human Nature Counselling" program on the island -- offering mental health support for 14 to 18 year olds
