More Canadian military suicides feared in recent weeks

OTTAWA — More military deaths during the Christmas and New Year holidays are being treated as suspected suicides.

The family of Leona MacEachern told CTV News that the 51-year-old retired corporal’s death in a traffic accident west of Calgary on Christmas Day was not an accident, but suicide.

MacEachern’s Pontiac Grand Am crossed the centre line on Highway 22 and collided head-on with a transport truck.
