How did Canada become Canada?

Originally the explorers who had discovered Canada where actually looking for India, but ended up in Canada. That's why the first nations where first called Indians. Later when Sir.John A Macdonald, the first government of Canada decided to build a railway, and sold a whole acre for 10 cents back then. When they built the railway the had many other people from the world come and live in Canada. Before there was the railway Canada was popular for the fur trade with the first nation people, because of our large amount of beavers we have.
