Plains of Abraham re-enacment canceled due to firestorm of protests
You won't need a map for Quebec City's Plains of Abraham re-enactment this year. The CTV reports:
"Following a firestorm of protest, a planned re-enactment of the 1759 defeat of French forces on Quebec City's Plains of Abraham has been cancelled. The National Battlefields Commission, the federal agency that helps to preserve the Plains, made the announcement Tuesday while explaining revisions to the programming surrounding the 250th anniversary."
I thought Americans were the only ones who were overly PC about stuff.
