A Montreal couple is suing the Royal Victoria Hospital for $60,000 after their newborn daughter was removed from her custody to foster care shortly after birth, due to a false positive result on a drug test.

Immediately after giving birth, Royal Victoria Hospital staff informed Isabel Villeneuve that her urine had tested positive for Methamphetamine and opiates and then refused to believe her claims that she had not taken drugs while pregnant.

Only after the test was shown to be incorrect was she was reunited with her daughter Kaia.
