A standoff began at Oka, Que., when police attempted to storm a barricade erected by the Mohawk Warriors Society from Kanesatake to block the expansion of a golf course onto land claimed by the Mohawk. An officer was killed and the Canadian Armed Forces were deployed. Two months later the standoff ended peaceably.
