October Crisis Exhibition

This exhibition, designed to fit in a classroom, consists of four medium-sized panels and four small panels. It delves into the causes and consequences of the October Crisis with a special and unique emphasis on the perspectives of the francophone soldiers who were there. Four videos featuring interviews with soldiers (with English subtitles) accompany the exhibition. You can also see a virtual version of this exhibition by clicking the button below.
