October 5, 1970 in Montréal

Pssst... guys this looks like the house.

Members of Front de Libération du Québec (FLQ) cell Libération kidnap British trade commissioner

James Cross?

KNOCK KNOCK

Get ready!

Get the car started NOW!

FLQ's goal was Quebec's complete independence. They resorted to violence to get change to happen.

AHHH!!

Transportation to Cuba!

Let's demand $500 000 in return for our hostage!

And our manifesto should be read over national television networks!

Don't forget the release of our political prisoners!

I refuse to give into FLQ's demands!

A joint federal-provincial team was established to deal wwih the crisis. They refused to satisfy the FLQ's demands, however, the media broadcasted the group's manifesto.

October 10, 1970

Another FLQ cell kidnapped Quebec cabinet minister Pierre Laporte in front of his house.

We need your help.

Bourassa reached out to the federal government as the crisis deepened. He requested help in the search for James Cross.

October 16, 1970

Drastic times call for drastic measures. I shall invoke the War Measures Act, for the first time in peacetime.

In response to Bourassa, Prime Minister Trudeau sent in Canadian troops and put the War Measures Act into force.

October 16, 1970

The act allowed police to arrest, question, and detain suspects, without charging them, for ninety days. It also makes membership in the FLQ a criminal offense.

The act suspended Canadian's rights and freedoms.

Unfortunately, Pierre Laporte's dead body was found in a car trunk, creating horror among people of Quebec.

October 18, 1970 in Montréal

You are under arrest!

After the act was invoked, police conducted thousands of searches and arrested about 450 people.

On October 27, 1970 it was learned that James Cross was alive and being held captive by the FLQ. After negotiation, he was released on December 3, in exchange for a plane trip to Cuba.
