Suez Crisis 1956

“It’s a race to the finish line for the Canadian peacekeepers. The troops (1st Battalion, Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada) are assembled, the ships are readied and morale is running high. But on the eve of their departure, the Canadians suffer a devastating rejection. The Egyptians have objected to Canada’s participation in the peacekeeping effort. CBC cameras capture the heady high and humiliating low the soldiers face as a result of this surprising diplomatic development.”
