You'd think that with the 200th anniversary upon us there would be some sort of fanfare of the War of 1812. After all, this war was a shining moment in the country that would become Canada's often dull history. Could it be because it is politically incorrect to bring up a conflict that the U.S. lost?
I think similar to the downgraded celebrations of the battle of the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City where it was poltically sensitive to remind Quebecers of the way the British kicked some french derierre, this important event is not getting the attention it deserves. No wonder Canadian history is boring.
