April 20, 1963

An explosion at the Canadian Army recruitmen­t centre in Montréal killed 65-year old Wilfred O’neil. The Front de libération du Québec claimed responsibi­lity for the attack. Several more bombs were set off in the coming months. The FLQ conflict culminated in the October Crisis of 1970, when a British diplomat was kidnapped and Québec Minister Pierre Laporte was killed.
