Did I say France was kind or benevolent? Absolutely not.
And they weren't.
They took advantage of what they had as long as they could. They did treat the Natives a little better, but not much and in the end it didn't matter anyway.
But Blackie likes to make things out to be like the Brits were awesome, kind, benevolent types more than any other nation, and they weren't.
The Brits, the Mongols, the Russians, the Spanish, the Chinese, the French, Persia, Rome, Greece, Egypt, Babylon, Assyria, the Ottomans, the Akkadians. Seriously, dumb ass, try reading something that isn't from StromFront or Mein Kampf. You might actually learn something for a change.
What date were you taught was the foundation of the USA?
I don't believe there was a series of unified states before the late 18th Century.
There were advanced civilizations in the Americas long before Europe. In fact, the Europeans that invaded this continent were barbarians by comparison and still are, only soft and flabby barbarians.
But Canada and the USA owe their existence to the British Empire.
As for Europeans being barbarians, we were building huge cathedrals, writing classic works of literature and even inventing democracy when North Americans at the time were living in tents and hunting animals with spears.

You have no idea about any country Britain invaded, just what your antiquated school system fed you.
In population, it may have briefly exceeded contemporaneous London.
As for what you say the Europeans were doing, I suggest you look up native history to see what THEY were doing back when Europe was living through the middle ages. Simplistic ways of life does not mean they were uncultured or unlearned.
Yes, it did. There was no union of American states before 1776.
There was no union Canadian provinces before 1867.
As many schoolchildren know, the USA was founded in 1776 and Canada in 1867.
Both owe their existences to the British Empire, as most people on the planet know.
The Red Indians were barbaric savages who contributed little or nothing towards modern civilisation.
The French founded the European legion of Canada and the British settlers moved in using an already developed infrastructure. The Natives, around here anyway, were wiped out long before the settlers moved in.
So you're saying Canada was founded by the far more brutal French Empire rather than the British one.
You're wrong - obviously so - but still an interesting view.
So you give thanks to the French Empire instead.
More poxy, maybe.
Smallpox, TB and God knows what else (plague?, influenza?) brought from Europe left an empty landscape around here.
Your knowledge of this continent is pretty much nonexistent.
