Americans love to take our history and icons and rewrite them in their image.   There are lots of examples.

The movie Canadian Pacific was supposed to be about building the CPR across the west.  According to the movie the railroad was plagued by marauding Indians constantly driven off by cowboys with six guns.

There is the movie Argo where the bravery of the Canadian diplomats in Iran is considered trivial compared to the heroism of the CIA

And the latest straw is the newest American publishing of Anne of Green Gables where they have changed Anne from a little red haired girl to a blond bombshell  .  Not the Anne that my daughters loved to read about.

Blond Anne









Oh the horror
