|Fred Moore, unidentified woman, Lee Harvey Oswald, Rafael|
So what is the possible Montreal connection to this bombshell news story?
Oswald was spotted handing out Fair Play for Cuba pamphlets along with leftist Fred Moore and an unidentified woman at the corner of St. James and McGill in Montreal in June 1963.
Cruz lived in Canada at the time, which raises the possibility that he too might have been in Montreal or had some knowledge of Oswald's visit north.
Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy in Dallas with an old Italian rifle purchased from William Sucher, who owned the International Firearms Store on Bleury.
A customs officer named J.P. Tremblay told the FBI that he saw Oswald in Montreal handing out pamphlets at St. James and McGill.
Now does the RCMP have any further knowledge about Oswald in Montreal?
Well Canadian spies were intensively active in their surveillance of political subversives at the time and the province and even the city of Montreal had a long history of vigorous Cold War anti-Communist surveillance.
It seems likely that some level of Canadian government force was aware of these events and possibly took photos.
Maurice Philipps has written extensively about the possible connections between Oswald and Quebec notables such as criminals Lucien Rivard and Willie Obront. He also explores Oswald's connections with Montreal lawyer Louis Mortimer Bloomfield, whose letters remain sealed by the national archives possibly because they relate to the Kennedy assassination. His books are in French which has limited their exposure.
If CSIS or any other level of Canadian government has knowledge pertaining to any of this, it might be time to come forth with it, as leaked information if necessary.
