Getting into a bit of Canadian history while i am living here, I was struck by the eloquence of former Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau in numerous youtube clips I have seen of him, particularly during the October Crisis.
The October Crisis stemmed from 2 kidnappings of government officals by the Front de Liberation du Quebec (FLQ) in Montreal. Trudeau invoked the War Measures Act which was the only time in peacetime Canada that it has been triggered. Federal Canadian Troops poured onto the streets of Montreal.
Having lived here for a year and a half in Canada it seems unbelievable that such an event would occur in Canada. I am struck by how opinion is so divided on Trudeau even to this day
Here are some clips....
