In 1970, after several years of sporadic bombings, strikes and terrorist activities, the communist 'Front de libération du Québec' (FLQ), a very rag-tag, disorganized group of under a dozen terrorists plus 50 or so hangers-on, kidnapped the British Trade Commissioner to Canada and the Quebec Minister of Labour.

Something that should have been merely a police matter, Prime Minister Trudeau instead called it a 'suspended insurrection', suspended habeus corpus in Quebec and sent the Canadian Army to patrol Montreal and the Province of Quebec, all to garner support in 'English' Canada. Before the end of the year, the five who kidnapped and killed the Quebec Minister, were under arrest, the British Trade Commissioner was back in the UK and his kidnappers were guests of Fidel Castro.

Turd-owe’s actions resulted in an enormous growth in support for separation, to the point that now, Quebec socialist separatist parties generally dictate to Quebec and Canada, as to what Quebec demands to remain in Canada. Now, one of the members of such a party, wants to honour this kidnapper, terrorist and communist.

This is sick. Trudeau’s actions were stupid, but honoring murderers is never healthy to say the least.

I heard a guy on the radio today comparing Rose to Bill Ayers. Both were domestic terrorists and both got away scot free. Doesn’t matter now. Rose is burning in hell.
