Fur Trade to Free Trade

Overview

Fur Trade to Free Trade traces the development of Canada as a nation – set against the backdrop of an often complicated political and economic relationship with the United States extending over 200 years. The book examines this historical relationship and sets out the implications of the 1987-1988 Trade Agreement for a Canadian nation moving into the 21st century!

Fur Trade to Free Trade is illustrated with the political cartoons of Sam Hunter, "Canada’s Outstanding Portrayer of Statesmen", whose depictions of political figures spanned the generations from Macdonald to Mackenzie King – and included "Uncle Sam" and the quintessential Canadian "Jack Canuck".
