O’Pray, Gerry

Gerry O’Pray served in the Canadian Forces during the Cold War era, and as such he participated in a number of peacekeeping missions from the period. Most notably Gerry was deployed in the Congo in the early 60s, where he was part of the Signals Corps, and in Gaza and the Suez in the mid-60s, during the period of Nasser’s presidency. Gerry did this interview with the Politics 12 class, where he told students about the context and the difficulties associated with the UN peacekeeping process.
