Abstract

The situation in Canada and Quebec has reached the proportions of a major social and political crisis. Not since the Winnipeg general strike in 1919 and the passage of Section 98 have the civil liberties of Canadians been so jeopardized and the very organizational existence of the left wing been challenged. Last Friday the Liberal government of Prime Minister Trudeau passed the War Measures Act, declaring that there exists in Quebec "a state of apprehended insurrection."
