Sometimes ugly memories from one’s past surge back into view. This past week featured extensive media coverage of an incident that happened on July 30, 1974, when an exploding grenade on an army base in Quebec killed six cadets. I was then between my second and third year of law school, serving for the summer on military duty. I was on call-out from the reserve force at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa as a staff officer dealing with military legal matters.
