Pierre Laporte: Martyr of the 1970 October Crisis  

Patrice Dutil examines the life of Pierre Laporte, the Acting Premier of Quebec who was kidnapped and murdered by the FLQ in October 1970 with Jean-Charles Panneton, the author of Pierre Laporte (Septentrion). Panneton discusses Laporte’s family, his childhood and his rise in the ranks of journalism particularly as he sharpens his attacks on the Maurice Duplessis and the Union Nationale. Laporte chooses politics and in the 1960s distinguishes himself as Quebec’s Minister of Culture and as Minister of Municipal Affairs. Laporte is revealed as a progressive and a nationalist. This podcast is also available in a French-language version. It was produced by Jessica Schmidt.
