Next we looked at some characteristics of the fur trade as carried out by the HBC and the NW Co. We will do more comparing next class. For homework, I asked that you review the info on the york boat and the canoe, and then complete a simple table showing the pros and cons (or, advantages and disadvantages) of each. Two points in each square would be good.
1. York Boats: Info Page
2. Canoes: Info Page
For more info on the canoe, here is a link to an interactive page on the NW Co
