Want to buy North America’s Oldest Company?

This makes me sad.
A South Caroline businessman is making an attempt to purchase the Hudson’s Bay Company. [here]
The company, lovingly referred to as the Bay, was incorporated in 1670 and once owned more real estate in North America, in fact “all the land in the Hudson Bay watershed – a mass that amounts to about a third of present-day Canada.” [here]
The HBC is the early history of Canada. Without their greed and ingenuity, Canada would never have grown beyond the Valley of the St. Lawrence.
Perhaps this is the revenge for War of 1812.
