As a teacher of Canadian history, I often use "Canada: a People's History" to supplement my lessons. I was hoping this would be another useful resource to use in my class. Boy, was a wrong! "Canada: The Story of Us" is shallow, badly written, filled with inaccuracies, and leaves huge gaps in our history. TV celebrities and sports figures stating such gems as, "the Rockies are huge. Really, really big" replace historians who actually know something about our history. Anglophone actors mispronounce their French lines. Platitudes fill every episode. We were so excited about this coming out for the 150th. We sat down to watch it and within 10 minutes, we knew it was a bomb. This is SO bad on SO many levels. DO NOT WATCH.
