Commemorations are already underway to mark the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
That war is a defining moment in Canadian history, and a time when we were fighting pitched battles with our closest friend and trading partner... the United States of America. All that, and we weren't official a country yet.
And in the mind of Day 6 contributor Carman Melville... the war's legacy is an historical wrong that needs to be made right.
