Here we are!! Acadia... imagine the wealth we can have, just for bringing fish!!
Yes, and there are so many fish!! Imagine your fame, Captian John Cabot!
Phase 2 - 1603-1670
Yes, in New France there is a good relationship with the First Nations, because we trade! And I, Samuel de Champlain, founded it!!
I've come to trade!!
Phase 3 - 1670-1760
All right, we're in... time to raid the forts!!
John Cabot, or Giovanni Caboto, discovers Acadia and tells of the fish. Britain and France both fish off the coast, and come to land to dry the fish before going back. Some contact with First Nations occurs, to trade for furs.
Phase 4 - 1760-1821
Ok, it's time to head west. For the better of the colony. Dawn's coming.
Samuel de Champlain sets up the first settlement in 'New France,' and there is the French-Haudenosaunee War, and the Ouendat middlemen are defeated.
Phase 5 - 1821-1870
Isn't it nice to control all of the Dominion of Canada?
Rival Networks (HBC and New France) fight for dominance, and that opens up the oppurtunity for coureur de bois and voyageurs, and Metis.
Oh... oh ok
Britain defeats France, and takes over their land. That land becomes the Northwest Company, and they are rivals with the Hudson Bay Company. They go west for more furs and land.
HBC takes over NWC. Now they have most of what is now called the Dominion of Canada, and major forts in most of today's provinces.
