Need for review[edit]

I came across this article in following up a reference from a featured article. Parts of it are adequate. Others appear to have been translated, not very well, so that sometimes the meaning is not at all clear. It needs a thorough review. --Martin Wyatt (talk) 20:21, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

Just my 2 cents...Martin Wyatt may be dubious, but the 15,000 rioters that is flagged is cited (Auger, 2008). Further, the Auger piece provides the following to substantiate this number: ‘Lt-Col Machin to DMD,’ 2 Apr. 1918, file 520, reel C-280, MG26, LAC; ‘MD-5 War Diaries: Quebec City,’ 29 Mar. 1918, file 977, reel T-11124, Records of the Department of Militia and Defence, RG9, LAC. Auger's piece is published in a respected, peer-reviewed journal. Be dubious all you want, but it checks out. So...I think this dubious flag needs to be removed ASAP.
