If memory serves, the largest armed action of police combined with the army was the
seige at the Ts' Peten "compound" (known as Gustafsen Lake) where the RCMP and the
Canadian Army moved in on the Sundancers who had been meeting there for several
consecutive years. If that wasn't the largest armed action, it was easily the most
co-ordinated media action.
