 Forum: Current Events   Topic: Damn Yankees are trying to steal our victory in 1812

I think that the war of 1812 was nothing more that a fledgling country trying to spread it's wings and a British colony that didn't quite agree with the idea. Canada did not exist until 1867 so to claim that Canada beat the United States is totally false. What both nations learned from this little ...

Work with the U.S. and Canadian governments on creating an Aboriginal State within North America for Native Americans. If not for the European colonization, aboriginals would have their own nation. The size of the new state will depend on how many native groups decide that they want to form a new n...

I've said it once, and i'll say it again - British objectives realized and America's repulsed. It's no victory for the United States unless one wants consciously omit the obvious and hunt for the secondary and tertiary results (but then, that's not sound history, is it?). If all you've got left is n...

The majority of the history classes that I had in school (both elementary and secondary) spent much of the time on the history of New France/Quebec. When it finally got to Confederation we had to fast track from there too until the school year ended, which was about five weeks. Confederation, war o...

Yes, the highschools have all the same Canadian history textbook. Why would that be surprising? Do the school boards where you are have different ones in every school? It's surprising because most major boards assign textbook selection to individual school history departments. There are several sec...

Mustang1: I should have specified history taught in elementary and seconday school. My bad for that. Yes, I am sure at the College and University level a more indeph look at Canadian history is taught. There are two history textbooks in my board, one for elementary level and one for secondary level...

Teach things like the 71 Canadian VCs? Not when I was in school, and certainly not in the crop of history books I see in my current school board. And the board I'm currently at has far better history books than what I was taught with. You wrote, "history classes" and WWI Canadian aces are...

It's too bad Canadian history classes don't teach those facts.


It does.

I can't believe voters would be stupid enough to give McSquinty another kick at the can. He already screwed the pooch twice, third time supposed to be a charm or what? It's not stupidity at all. It's "pick your poison" for most Ontarians. Even though most don't like McGuinty or what the L...

Possibly it is. I do not take swipes at conservatives, though. I have, long ago, co-managed the campaign of a Conservative candidate. The Right Wing of the Republican Party in the US and the CPC in Canada are not conservative. They are about as close to conservative philosophy as Left Wing Socialis...

I'm assuming you mean War Plan Red (which i earlier posted), but this was more about the expanding British Empire pre-WWII. Not to mention it was revoked when the war started, so this "if the Nazis defeated Britain" is complete bullshit. If i had to guess, he probably meant War Plan Red, ...

The NW Passage...they see it as international waters...yeah, very good allies they are I'd hardly say that this would somehow prevent them from honouring NATO and NORAD commitments. Got a military example, since that's the context it was quoted in? when they invaded quebec in their revolutionary wa...
