Living History in Winnipeg

Okay, let's say I'm always a little conflicted about this whizzbang stuff commemorating past battles. But history is history, and the more we learn about it and keep it alive the better.

Emmanuel is in Winnipeg this week, giving workshops on the history of French as part of the 44th Festival du Voyageur and the 225th anniversary of Fort Rouge. I'm sure that he's opening some eyes there to the fascination of the past, with all its wonders and questions that ring out still today.

As for the shots shown above, they were fired Friday night as the celebrations opened.
