CANADA owes the North-West to the daring French and British
path-finders, who by sea, trail and river revealed the resources
of the vast interior, and prepared the way for railways and settlers.
Missionary zeal, the fur-trade, the belief in a passage to Cathay, and the
search for the Western Sea inspired the early explorations. In 1610
Hudson explored the shores of the northern bay that today bears his
name. Five years later, from Quebec, Le Caron and Champlain both
made their way into the forested interior to Lake Huron. Through these
two mighty portals, man after man went in the following centuries,
undaunted by fierce tribes and the dangers of an unknown land. By
1662 Radisson, an adventurous fur - trader from Trois-Rivieres, had
travelled into what is now Manitoba, and with Groseilliers had led the
expedition by sea from England to Hudson Bay which resulted in the
formation of the Hudson's Bay Company in 1670.
By its far-reaching charter, the Hudson's Bay Company was given sovereign rights over the territories drained by the rivers that flow into
Hudson Bay. But it made no serious effort to explore its immense
holdings until 1770, when it despatched Hearne to the Arctic Ocean —
which he reached at the mouth of the Coppermine River in July 177.1.
Meanwhile the French fur-traders from the St. Lawrence valley were
pushing farther and farther into the west. La Verandrye and his sons
explored the prairies between 1731 and 1743. Trading for furs, and
searching in vain for the Western Sea, they wandered from Lake Winnipeg
to the head-waters of the Missouri and the northern Rockies. After
Canada was ceded to England in 1763, the Scottish fur-merchants of
Montreal invaded the district north of the Saskatchewan, and a real
war ensued between them and the older company. Explorers of both
companies ranged far and wide and fur-posts sprang up in their wake.
In 1789 Mackenzie discovered the Mackenzie River, and followed it to
the Arctic Ocean. In 1793 he crossed the Rocky Mountains and reached
the Pacific Ocean. The long-sought Western Sea was found. Fraser
followed him in 1806 and traced the course of the turbulent Fraser River
to its mouth. Fur-posts were built in the mountains and on the Pacific
Coast, which had been explored by Cook in 1778 and charted by Vancouver
in 1793. From 1784 to 1811 David Thompson, the greatest of Canada's
geographers, made important explorations and surveys in the North-
West. He traced the courses of the great rivers of the prairies and the
west coast, and mapped much of the intervening territories.
Then in 1821 the rival fur-companies united, bringing to an end a war
which had been waged relentlessly for years. George, afterwards Sir
George, Simpson was the first governor of the merged companies. He
ruled as absolute monarch over the whole of Rupert's Land and the
North-West from Labrador to the Pacific Ocean, and from the headwaters of the Mississippi and Missouri to the Arctic. When he made a
tour of the fur-posts he travelled in state as a true king. Bugles announced
his coming to a fort; his entourage of fast-driven canoes swept to the
landing to the stirring strains of bag-pipes, guns boomed, and the
assembled traders and Indians welcomed him with shouts.
No longer do the picturesque fur-brigades glide along the rivers of the
North-West to the music of the voyageurs lilting chansons and the rhythmic swing of their paddles. The wilderness vanished before the advancing
rails of the Canadian Pacific in the early eighties. A new North-West
has arisen with great cities on the sites of the ancient fur-posts, and miles
of grain wave where Indians and fur-traders wandered in the past.
