Coming to Canada I worked with many ex soldiers and was too young to serve in WW2. I was assured of the contribution of Canadians in smashing Hitler. I will never forget the vitriol filled description of certain of those who were of military age at that time.
For these were men who threatened to riot or go to jail rather than serve. A compromise was reached and if they wore the uniform, they would not have to go overseas. The main target was Quebec, although the regular French Canadian regiments achieved great distinction in the war.
When Pierre Elliot Trudeau campaigned in 1968 for leadership of Canada, the press went full out. Trudeamania: some doubters called it. The public seemingly did not know a thing about the man. Suddenly he became a "gift from the gods". Yet he deliberately got himself thrown out of officer cadet training in the war. He supported anti-conscription. All forgotten by even those who still lived in the past glory of the defeat of the Axis powers.
Excuse this ramble.
Thanks for reminding us all of the Quebec Zombies and their undead leader Trudeau pere.
It’s a disgraceful heritage.
