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.
(Appendix List No. 168) shows the happy
highlights of the visit but spares no pains to show the security arrangements
when demonstrations were in evidence.
