A short guide to the articles about the FLQ crisis:

Pierre Trudeau, “1968-1974: Power and Responsibility,” from Trudeau: Memoirs, Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, 1993, 130-152.

-          This is a selection from Prime Minister Trudeau’s own memoirs, in which he defends his decision to use the war measures act. 

Rene Levesque, “Apprenticeship” and “Je Me Souviens,” from Memoirs, Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, 1995, 161-167, and 242-251.

-          This is two short sections of the memoirs of the leader of the Parti Quebecois in 1970, Rene Levesque.  Remember the complicated position he is in – he support separatism, but obviously opposes the actions of the FLQ.

Eric Kierans, “Resignation,” from Remembering, Toronto: Stoddart, 2001, 178-184.

-          Eric Kierans was a cabinet minister in the government of Pierre Trudeau in 1970.  He provides a viewpoint from the government side, but one that does not necessarily agree with the actions of the government.

Dominique Clement, “The October Crisis of 1970: Human Rights abuses under the War Measures Act,” Journal of Canadian Studies, 42,2 (2008), 160-186.

-          Clement is an historian, and this is an academic article that discusses the broad abuses of human rights that occurred across Canada while the War Measures Act was in effect.

Do you trust the government to decide for you? Why or why notName:InstitutionTrudeaus ActionsThe actions by Pierre Elliott Trudeau to invoke the War Measures Act were coined from a series of events that led to the two kidnappings of British trade commissioner, Cross Richard and Pierre Laporte, Quebec’s labour minister and the government`s senior Cabinet minister, by the Front de Libération du Québec (FLQ) members in Quebec province in October 1970 (Levesque, 1995). The kidnappers were threatening to kill Cross if the Canadian government did not release 23 prison inmates charged in Canada with Front related crimes.
