Long Description:
Ce castor en bronze en relief est situé au bas de la plaque. Le castor est l'animal national du Canada et, bien qu'il ait été chassé presque jusqu'à l'extinction dans les premières années de ce pays, la vente de sa fourrure sur les marchés européens a permis au Canada de prospérer et de devenir un pays.

This bronze beaver in relief is located at the bottom of the plaque. The beaver is Canada's national animal, and while it was hunted almost to extinction in the early years of this country, the selling of its fur in the European Markets allowed Canada to prosper and eventually, become a country.
