Death of Cinar co founder was preventable

MONTREAL (CP) _ A Quebec coroner says it took too long for staff at a plastic surgery clinic to call for help after Cinar Inc. co-founder Micheline Charest suffered complications from cosmetic surgery.

Charest was 51 when she died in April 2004 after undergoing about six hours of surgery at a private Montreal clinic.

The coroner says the celebrated producer suffered a lack of oxygen that led to cardiac arrest. Forty-five minutes passed between the time a nurse found Charest was having difficulty breathing and the time an ambulance arrived.

Charest and husband Ronald Weinberg produced award-winning animated children’s programs at Cinar, including Arthur and Caillou. But the couple was ousted from the company and fined $1 million by the Quebec Securities Commission after several irregularities were discovered.
