How did 'Assiniboia' come into being? How did the arrival of settlers threaten the fur trader's way of life? What was the 'pemmican proclamation'--how did this lead to war? What was the result? Who was George Simpson--what did he do for Rupert's Land?

The assiniboia came into being by Selkirk. Selkirk was given the rights to settle an area of thousands of square kilometres which he named "Assiniboia." The arrival of settlers threatened the fur trader's way of life because they were taking up some of the land that they were using for their own benefit. The pemmican procalamation was something forbidding the export of pemmican from the red river. This lead to war by the NWC thinking that the HBC planned the colony as a way to ruin it. The result of this was not very good. Lots of HBc emplyees were killed . Selkirk also ended up dying because of the NWC, they sued him. George simpson was the new governor of Rupert's Land. He was capable, tough, a dictatot, and he fired as well as punished employees. He travelled all over, personally checking out hisposts. He helped restore dwindling stocks of fur-bearing animals.

Please add any moe information, and check to see if this is correct, thanks. Is there some info in here which I could take out(that is not important?)

  1. All of it seems right. And you have enough (but not too much) information.

    This is the only sentence I don't understand.

    "Selkirk also ended up dying because of the NWC, they sued him."

    How did Selkirk die? It certainly wasn't because the NWC sued him, was it?

  2. Can I replace that sentence with this:

    Selkirk lost a great deal of money after the Nor'westers sued him. A year after he died, in 1821.

  3. I'm not sure about these:

    How did the arrival of settlers threaten the fur trader's way of life?

    The arrival of settlers threatened the fur trader's way of life because they were taking up some of the land that they were using for their own benefit.

    What was the 'pemmican proclamation'--how did this lead to war?(2nd part)

    This lead to war by the NWC thinking that the HBC planned the colony as a way to ruin it.

    Is the result good as well? Did Rupert do anything else for his land?

  5. What does this sentence mean:

    While it applied to both the Hudson's Bay Co and the North West Co, the latter saw the document as an HBC ploy designed to deny necessary provisions to the engagés of their canoe brigades.

    is the sentence I posted above good of selkirk?

  6. The Pemmican Proclamation applied to both the HBC and the NWC. But the NWC thought it was designed by HBC to keep necessary supplies from going to the members of their canoe traders.

    Yes, your sentence about Selkirk is good.
