4. it was trudeau's responsibility to do his best to keep canada and its citizens safe.
The act was further justified when various important figures, such as the premier of Quebec, head of montreal police, and civic authourities asked for the War Measures Act to be deployed. fdfdf YOOOOO OH NO ANOTHER CONTROVERSY DD: Should Quebec be able to seperate from the rest of Canada? There are both Pros and Cos for this issue Pros of Quebec Leaving: We would lose 135 million dollars in debt. Conflicts over English speakers and French speakers would stop. Cons for Quebec leaving: Losing Quebec would mean loosing 7 million people and 16 percent of our landmass. The Maritimes would be cut off from the rest of Canada Canada would lose a part of it's culture Do you think that Government should be allowed extreme power in these kind of circumstances? should Quebec be an independent country? .
