About the Baid d'Hudson

Before the Treaty of Utrecht of 1713, the French claimed the Baie d'Hudson area and controlled a large portion of it. This government of France Website claims the existence of the Baie d'Hudson as a colony alongside Acadia, Newfoundland, Canada and Louisiana.

Ideally, we should not just redirect to Rupert's Land, but since nothing has been written on the subject yet...

Changes

Good work users Thomas and Mathieu, I would however take issue with changing Acadian Expulsion to “Great Upheaval” with is a poetic title which doesn’t give any historical background. “Upheaval of what?” the reader will ask. Also, I don’t think we need to state which colony each of the cities belonged too, since we have just listed the colonies at the top of the infobox. They should be listed by size, by date founded, or by alphabetical order. Other than that, good work all around, especially with the addition of the “Justice” section.
