Episode 5: Lightening
This episode deals with revelations resulting either from medical trauma or from personal experiences. Zodwa, a talented violinist, is admitted following a motor vehicle accident that results in her fingers being crushed. Consequently, she will never be able to play the violin again. The admission of Minister Albert Mzobe raises the question of preferential treatment for high-profile officials. Dr Jenny Langford receives the results of her HIV/Aids test and Sipho continues his efforts to attract Jenny’s attention.
A hostage drama and a political nail-biter
On October 5, 1970, the political landscape of Canada was changed forever when terrorists from the Front de libération du Québec (FLQ) kidnapped British diplomat James Cross from his Montreal residence. Five days later, another FLQ cell snatched Pierre Laporte, Québec’s Minister of Labour. By October 17th, Laporte had been killed, the police were overwhelmed, the city was in chaos, and the army, in full battle gear, patrolled the streets. Then Ottawa invoked The War Measures Act suspending civil liberties in Canada.

With tanks in the streets and citizens detained without charges, Pierre Laporte (Denis Bernard), Québec Minister of Labour, is murdered. Québec, Canada and the world are stunned.
From the Canadian Press, quoting CBC’s Richard Stursberg – “English Canadians are the only people in the industrialized world who seem to prefer the content of another country to their own.”:
