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. Ellie Chase, Hamilton
