Canada's national broadcaster recreating WWI soldiers

CBC watchdogs have discovered that CBC-TV is doing a historical "reality series recreating the hard life of a Canadian soldier during the First World War. "

Wonder if they'll be doing a follow-up series recreating the hard life of Ukrainian and other East European immigrants who were interned in concentration camps across Canada, and who built, at the point of a bayonet, the highways and national parks Canadians have enjoyed for decades.

I'm not a gambler, but I'd bet big bucks we won't see any such thing.

I'm sure this "Great War Project" will be fascinating and look forward to watching it. But there is so much more to Canadian history than the air-brushed version so cherished by the elites who have made themselves experts on the topic.

Canadians deserve to know the whole story. Unfortunately, for some very strange reason, the very folks who should be telling it have been working hard to ensure that they don't.
