Above and beyond the actual cancellation of the re-enactment is the fact that it was cancelled because of threatened disruption and fears of violence towards re-enactors and visitors.

Since at least one definition, at, http://wordnetweb.princeton.
edu), terrorism is “ the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political ….”

Anyone considering this surrender acceptable should remember “…Peace in Our Time” or recall “Dane Geld” from farther back in history.

How about a spew alert next time?

Other than that, I can only second Raven Traveller's comment.

Park's Canada should have sold the concept of the re-enactment as the best of two out of three and the Quebecois could use (play) Patrick Roy and his sons.
