Canadian History: The Video Game

If Canadian history looked like this, I think I could get into it. Can Mario (Sir John A. McDonald) crush King "Louis Riel" and his rebellion? I want to play!

"Through gaming, we intend to challenge students to see if they can be as successful as Sir John A. Macdonald in creating a new country," wrote Thomas S. Axworthy, chair of the Centre for the Study of Democracy at Queen's University in the National Post.

Of course it would probably be more like a dull(er) version of Railroad Tycoon. But I love Steve Murray's graphic, so I suppose that will suffice.
