Hi, Sean, the young, mentally disturbed soldier did kill some members of
the Quebec Legislative Assembly with his army issue sub-machine gun.
The Sergeant at Arms was a Lt Colonel in WWII. He bravely walked into
the chamber, persuaded the soldier that he outranked him and got him to
surrender the weapon.
The Sgt at Arms received a civilian medal to go with his WWII ones and
died a few years later.
The killer was released last year after serving about 13 years.
