Perhaps, aside from our present day flag, the universal symbol of Canada is the Beaver. From the earliest fur trading with the Company of 100 Associates (Champlain), coureur de bois, to the Hudson Bay Company and the Northwest Company, the Beaver was the prize pelt and synonymous with Canada. A wonderful thoughtful carving!
