War mea­sures brought com­fort to Que­be­cers

RE: Justin’s Dad tramped my free­dom (July 15)

I must ad­mit I got a chuckle from Mr. Lisowski’s shame­less tongue-in-cheek plea for $10.5 mil­lion US. Like most things in life, there are two sides to every story.

I’m cer­tain that for the peo­ple of Que­bec, the de­ploy­ment of troops gave them a sense of se­cu­rity, while to a large per­cent­age of Cana­di­ans watch­ing it un­fold on TV it was dis­turb­ing to wit­ness an army oc­cu­py­ing a city in Canada. It was, per­haps, most un­set­tling to see tanks rum­bling down the streets. It looked like a page out of Euro­pean his­tory, and on Oct. 5, 1970, Canada seemed to lose its in­no­cence.
