  • Description

    The deadline for the Canadian Government to meet the ransom demands of the French separatist kidnappers of the British diplomat Mr James expired at 1600 GMT today (Thursday).

    The Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa yesterday (Wednesday) that the Government was not going to let a minority group impose their view on a majority by violence.

    The kidnappers had abducted Mr Cross from his home in Montreal on Monday and their latest ransom note was found in a locker in Quebec.

    Mr Trudeau was asked about his Government's policy towards the kidnapping.
