Bloc Québécois demands apology for War Measures Act

Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet is calling on the government to apologize for legislation that remains controversial 50 years after its passage during the October Crisis in Quebec. He urged the Conservatives to join his efforts. Opposition House leader Gerard Deltell says the Conservatives believe the October Crisis should be remembered primarily for the death of Quebec cabinet minister Pierre Laporte at the hands of the FLQ.
