Cancelled Reenactment

Who in the hell thought it was a good idea to reenact the Plains of Abraham anyway?


Was it because all of the enmity between French and English is a long lost memory?

Was it the utter lack of concern voiced by the Quebecois regarding their culture?

Was it the fact that there hasn't been any terrorism on the subject in about 40 years?

Yeah, obviously reenacting the battle that led to all of the stress between francophone and anglophones these last two centuries was a fabulous idea.

It was an idiotic move.

Discuss the battle in history books and classroom lessons but making an event out of re-enacting the battle is offensive. The driving force behind such re-enactments is celebrating victory.
