Donald Lavoie became an informer to save his life, but also out of revenge. The ex-criminal claims to be living on borrowed time.
In Claude Gervais' report, Toronto lawyer Edward Greenspan questions the credibility of informers for moral reasons.
Donald Lavoie will never be convicted for the murders he committed. He will serve eight years in prison for bank robbery.

The Protection Program Act witnesses was born in 1996.
Some time later, on July 21, 1997, Le Point presents a report by journalist Michel Sénécal which questions the use of informers in criminal cases.
