A 29-year-old Quebec City man is facing charges after he allegedly left his 5-year-old son home alone last night so he could go out to a local bar.
The child was found, wearing only underwear, wandering the streets of the Quebec City district of Charlesboug.
He was shivering in the cold when a police patrol noticed him on a busy street corner.
The youngster has been returned to his mother.
The father faces charges of child abandonment.
