    The extensive competition between the years and resulting diplomacy, sheds an interesting light on the relationship between private enterprise and the state.

How that base Hudsons Bay Company over 1670-1870 book must be a matter of speculation since no animal counts exist from that period; nevertheless, the evidence we do have points to a scenario in which over-harvesting, at least in some years, gave rise to serious depletion of the beaver and possibly other animals such as marten that were also being traded. William McGillivray was groomed by his uncle to succeed him as Director of the North West Company, and by he had effectively done so, acting as Montreal agents' representative at the annual meetings at Grand Portage, and later at Fort William.
