United States Military Task-force

Shouldn't this article be classified under the Canadian Military History Task Force rather the American?

POV

- This account of the battle seems somewhat skewed towards the Point of View of the Canadian Army. Wikipedia is supposed to be an objective source. Considering the numerical and tactical inferiority of the Metis force (they had for the most part inferior firearms and were short on ammunition) the fact that they held off the Canadian forces for four days is laudable. Where is the tactical genius in the Canadian approach here? It seems sheer weight of numbers eventually won.

Assessment[edit]

This article was rated C class by an independent assessment (military) August 23, 2014. Comment by reviewer: "C-Class. Still has uncited paras, bit unsure about whether it properly covers the topic, but have given the benefit of the doubt, as it was already assessed as =y. Please bring it back when fully cited. Regards,"

Suggestions for improvement: references needed for every paragraph and further expansion of the page.-- Kayoty (talk) 18:55, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
