Would you have rather preferred to stay in France and live in a feudal-style farm or move to Canada and live as a habitant. Make a list of pros and cons for each option. Consider criteria such as familiarity of surroundings, physical labour, and taxes.
I would have preferred to move to Canada and live as a habitant. I wouldn't want to stay in france for the rest of my life paying taxes and fees. I wouldn't have even been able to make a modest amount of money living there. By moving to Canada I could cultivate my land in exchange for providing fees and services to the seigneur. I could also have the oppurtunity to work in fur trade. In Canada I would still have to pay my taxes and dues to the seigneur but not as much as I would have to In France. I could build a house in Canada and farm the land. Life would be a lot easier for me in Canada.
Please add any more information, thanks
Good job, Sara!
Ms. Sue where would you have rather prefered to live, in France or Canada?
I'd have preferred to live in Canada. However, if I had family and friends in France, it would be very difficult to leave them.
Why don't you ask your parents or grandparents why any of your ancestors moved to Canada from a foreign country.
