History Of The Northwest TerritoriesEdit
On a lovely winter's day in 1870, the Hudson Bay Company arrived to the vast, unclaimed land and gave it to Canada as a Boxing Day gift. Canada was like, "OMG, LAND!" and then forgot about it, due to previous commitments, such as beaver racing and teaching Sasquatch families English. Approximately 50 years later, they realized they owned a gigantic piece of ice that was only useful because Santa Claus lived in the general area. Canada figured they could manage to come up with a business deal with Saint Nick, but they were beaten to death by ravenous elves and no such deal ever came about. After a week-long cannabis binge and a Rocky-style training regime, they realized that they needed to do something about this poor, pitiful uncharted piece of "land". They hired a random drunken eskimo to draw land lines with his ice sceptor and the divided areas were known as territories to make them seem more special and important. The Northwest territories were especially important because it is one province with a plural name, and it's in the middle of said territories.
