Tension, apprehension and rigid security arrangements accompanied the Royal visit to Canada between October 6 and 13, 1964. The occasion of the Queen’s visit to Canada was the centenary of the Confederation and the principal event was the opening at Charlottetown of the Fathers of Confederation Memorial Centre in Prince Edward Island. The strain came from the separatist movement in the Province of Quebec which had its terrorist wing. Many ugly incidents occurred during the ceremonies at the Quebec Par1iament building.
