Anti-conscription riots broke out in Québec City. The riots demonstrated French Canada’s dissatisfaction with the First World War effort, particularly with regard to conscription. The Borden government proclaimed martial law, suspended habeas corpus and sent over 6,000 English-speaking soldiers into the province to enforce conscription. The Easter Riots were violent, leaving at least four dead when soldiers opened fire on the rioters.
