Comment: Carman Melvile Reality Checks War of 1812


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.
