CBC says “sorry”

The CBC is apologizing for leaving Port Royal out of its docu-drama “Canada: The Story of Us.”

The first episode asserted the first permanent European settlement in Canada was Quebec City while Port Royal was settled three years earlier.

CBC spokesman Chuck Thompson issued a statement saying 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, but it won’t be changing the show.  It’s planning to host live digital conversations about it.
