Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Valentine dance trophy day set Speaks on FLQ MAGUATH (HNS) Ma- gralh Il'fli School students and interested citizens recently heard former HCMP member Patrick Walsh speak on the FLQ tcrfm-isls. He is research director of the Canadian League of Rights. Born in Quebec, he is consid- eifcd an authority on Commun- ism in Canada. Bob West opened the meeting with prayer "because we be- lieve unless our activities are guided by God we will not suc- ceed." Mr. Walsh said the story of the Front de Liberation du Que- bec began with a "Robin Hood" approach but soon lost the idea of giving to the poor and kept funds they stole to further ter- rorism in Quebec. "The difference between their manifesto and reality is the dif- ference between propaganda and truth." he stated. "They speak of the blights on our society but do not tell of bombings, kidnapping and miuvVrs they have done in Quebec. "The tactics of Communism vary. Their strategy to smash Christianity has never changed. It is the old struggle between good and evil. They are dedicated to evil we must be dedicated to good. They are trying to overthrow us before they cut each other down." Rash of mishaps FERNIE (Special) The worst driving conditions of the winter to date have contributed to a rash of minor accidents.
