This is NOT Anne of Green Gables

Now that the controversy seems to have died down a bit, I will join what’s left of the fray in support of Anne remaining a precocious, imaginative, chatty, red-haired girl with freckles and pigtails (see first two pics). Anne is also a courageous, bright, wholesome role model for young girls, which is something that is seriously lacking in our society today. And now they want to take away Anne and replace her with this new image (see third pic)?

Plus, Anne is a Canadian symbol, like the maple leaf, the beaver and the Rockies. AND she attract tourists. What more could she possibly do for us?

So, thank you fellow Canadians for expressing your outrage at this new depiction of Anne.
