CBC apologizes for 'Canada: The Story of Us': 'Some people felt misrepresented'
The C-B-C is apologizing after its docu-drama ``Canada: The Story of Us'' prompted a number of complaints, including one from Nova Scotia's premier.
Stephen McNeil said the show wrongly asserted that Canada's first permanent European settlement began in 1608 near what is now Quebec City, instead of Port Royal, Nova Scotia, three years earlier.
The mayor of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, also denounced the show as a disrespectful and erroneous version of what really happened when Europeans first settled in Canada.
C-B-C spokesman Chuck Thompson says in a statement that people are bound to have different points of view on Canada's history, but the national broadcaster didn't intend to offend anyone and is open to feedback.
