Oh, Canada?

We’re watching some Degrassi Junior High tonight and a bit about the U.S. invading Canada came up. Now, it may surprise you that my public school education didn’t discuss the multiple times we invaded (War of 1812, Fenian Raids of the 1860s), or planned to, our northern neighbors.

First I heard of an invasion was Canadian Bacon. Oh, and History Lessons: How Textbooks from Around the World Portray U.S. History.

(related note: Numb3rs is written just like Degrassi)
