Canada-colonization and indigenous murder

The history of Canada is an interesting tale

First Nations people have lived in Canada for thousands of years, and Europeans made contact with them around A.D. 1000, when Norse settlers arrived in what is now Newfoundland. But the age of Canadian colonization didn’t start until 1497, when John Cabot landed somewhere in Newfoundland.

The land Cabot explored was briefly claimed by both the Spanish crown and the Portuguese Empire, and since Cabot’s voyage was funded by Great Britain, they could have claimed the land, too. However, Britain lagged and while they did so, the French laid claim to territory they called “Canada” in the 1530s, along with land that extended to the eastern Atlantic and up to Hudson Bay.
