Were you alive in October 1970? I was, and I lived through the October Crisis, and remember it, and since it is October, let’s remember this critical time in Canadian and Quebec history. Given that Mr. Cross was Trade Commissioner, this has a little bit to do with Finances. However, no, this isn’t really topical, but still an essential piece of Canadian history.
I remember this because I remember a school chum’s Dad was a Member of the Legislature, and when I went to a birthday party at their house, there was a machine gun on his front lawn and some large soldiers there as well.
