Question
Fill in the Blanks: The [blank_start]British[blank_end] were also interested in the Fur Trade. The [blank_start]Hudson[blank_end]'s Bay Company was formed in [blank_start]1760[blank_end]. King [blank_start]Charles[blank_end] the [blank_start]II[blank_end] of [blank_start]England[blank_end] gave the company control of all land from northern [blank_start]Quebec[blank_end] to the [blank_start]prairies[blank_end]. They called this region [blank_start]Rupert's Land[blank_end], which was named after the King's [blank_start]cousin[blank_end]. The idea of the company came from two [blank_start]French[blank_end] traders. They sold the idea of building a company to the [blank_start]British[blank_end]. The British traders did not go out into the [blank_start]wilderness[blank_end] themselves. They instead use the [blank_start]Natives[blank_end] to bring the furs directly into the shores of Hudson's Bay. Then [blank_start]larger[blank_end] ships would take the furs to [blank_start]Europe[blank_end].
