No, the army has not been called in….


Shaney Komulainen of Canadian Press

Rumours abound about the army being called kin to quell the nightly student destruction! So far they have all been easily dispelled, including one film set! The appearance of the army on streets in most North American cities, other than providing disaster relief as was the case in the Ice Storm of 1998 is a rare thing. It is also a public relations nightmare for the government; thank back to the Oka Crisis of 1990. Even Pierre Trudeau’s use of the War Measures act in 1969 has its detractors and those were real bombs!!
