Breaking news : Europeans are here to stay

October 16, 2008

If you can, grab a paper copy of today’s Montreal Gazette. Starting on A13, there’s a 4-page special edition of the newspaper as if it had been written in Champlain’s time (this “Quebec City is 400 years old” craze is still going on in la belle province).

What I find interesting is that it’s written from the perspective First Nations might have had. “Europeans are here to stay”, the headline screams. “Are we admitting too many Europeans”, the editorial board wonders.

Nicely done and “outside the box.”
