Slavery in today`s Canada is the result of the arrival of Europeans, with some indigenous peoples swearing prisoners involved in the war.1 Unlike the natives, Europeans regarded enslaved persons less than human beings and more as goods that could be bought and sold. It is equally important that Europeans viewed slavery racially, with indigenous and African men serving and governing whites as masters. The slave trade was also a key to the development of the wider economy. “The copper bars that some British traders exchanged for African slaves, for example, were produced in south Wales, as well as the cheap wool garments used as uniforms for slaves in West India,” says Hanley. France also ceded the eastern half of French Louisiana to Great Britain; i.e. the Mississippi River area to the Appala Mountains.  France had already secretly delivered Louisiana to Spain in the Treaty of Fontainebleau (1762), but Spain did not take possession of it until 1769. Spain ceded East Florida to Great Britain.  In addition, France recovered its factories in India, but recognized British customers as leaders of important Indian states and promised not to send troops to Bengal. Britain accepted the demolition of its fortifications in British Honduras (now Belize), but retained a woodcut colony there. Britain confirmed the right of its new subjects to practice Catholicism. In the “triangular trade”, British ships carried goods traded on West African coasts for Africans captured by local leaders. These African slaves were transported across the Atlantic and forced to work on plantations. The ships were then loaded with the proceeds of slavery, exported crops and goods such as sugar and rum and returned to the UK for sale. The signing of the treaty ended the seven-year war, known as the French and Indian war in North American theatre, and marked the beginning of an era of British domination outside Europe.  Britain and France each returned much of the territory they had conquered during the war, but Britain gained much of French ownership in North America. In addition, Britain agreed to protect Catholicism in the New World. The treaty did not include Prussia and Austria, since five days later they signed a separate agreement, the Treaty of Hubertusburg. The two high-ranking contracting parties mutually agree that the ships of their respective navies, which receive specific instructions to this effect, may, as noted below, visit the commercial vessels of the aforementioned nations which, for reasonable reasons, may be suspected of having participated in or equipped with the slave trade in Africa; to have been involved in the African slave trade during the journey in which they are received by these cruisers, contrary to the provisions of this treaty; and that these cruisers arrest and ship or remove them so that they can be brought to justice later.
This is what needs to be recognized in Canada…. We don`t want people to tell us it was sweet because they abdicated beef or chicken, or you have. We are talking about African slaves in these Canadian colonies… who commits all kinds of violence on his body. The bondage in progress was cruel and exploitable, but it is different from slavery in New France and Great Britain-North America. At the end of their contracts, the displaced servants were free to go, and sometimes they received payment from the land and property. Slavery, on the other hand, defined man as property and involved forced labour for life. The children of slaves also became property, which made slavery intergenerational. The patriotic song Britannia told the British that they “will never, ever be slaves.” But millions were enslaved or exchanged by the Brita
