From The Hill Times’ Photo Archives: 31st Year in Print

Quebec Conservative MP Jean Charest, pictured in a Hill scrum in the early 1990s, along with reporters Julian Beltrame and Michel Vastel, right. From the Nov. 8, 1990, issue of The Hill Times, opposition MPs at the time claimed Mr. Charest had been planted by the PMO onto the House Aboriginal Affairs Committee to steer it away from raising any embarrassing questions about the Oka crisis, or the Mohawk Resistance, that summer, claims that Mr. Charest refuted. The Mohawk of Kanesatake had gripped the country for nearly two months when they, along with the members of the Kahnawake and Akwesasne communities, protested the expansion of a golf course and the development of luxury condominiums on disputed land in Oka, Que., just west of Montreal and which included a Mohawk burial ground. For 78 days, they put up a blockade to prevent the development. They held an armed standoff against the Sûreté du Québec police, which lasted from July 11, 1990, to Sept. 26, 1990, attracting national attention.
