Simcoe Day: How should we celebrate a myopic vision of Canada?

John Graves Simcoe, whose "day" we're celebrating, finally got some serious recognition this year, courtesy of U.S. TV. He appears as a magnificent British villain in Turn: Washington's Spies, on AMC, the Mad Men network. It recounts "America's first spy network," during the American Revolution. Simcoe is played by Samuel Roukin, a U.S. actor with BBC cred: he sneers, he taunts, he tortures, he kills. Every actor knows the real heroes are the villains.
