History tells us that the Peytons and others control of the salmon and restriction of the Beothic to the seashore helped aid the destruction of the aboriginal people, this being the area where the last survived. But besides the salmon, we wanted the fur, later we wanted the wood, and the minerals, and then the water itself for electricity generation. As we ponder the value of the salmon, we should acknowledge, to our shame, and as we do today in respect of the Inuit, that we did so little to save the Beothic.
