September 13, 2011 10:53PM
They were given a large portion of land surrounding the Hudson bay. The land was called "Ruperts Land". Since the HBC owned the land they had an monopoly of its buisness.
Monopoly-complete control(only people aloud to buy and sell furs there)

What geographical advantage did the HBC have over the NWC?
The HBC had a large portion of land by the Hudson Bay. This made it way easier to transport goods back and forth. The NWC, on the other hand, had all of the land which is now Quebec. They took difficult routes that were more time consuming. It would also take more time for the ships to arrive from Europe. Hope this helps :)

Asked in Cheat Codes, Nintendo Wii
Can the Hombrew Channel use cheat codes on Wii games?
Yes, HBC or Home brew channel can be installed on wii, Google HBC installing and you will find the answer and procedures you are looking for. Orcarnia is a program for HBC uses codes from gECKOCODES.ORG AND ALLOWS YOU to cheat. However all that takes some time to install unless you have it already then I would say that you need to get homebrew browser and it will automatically add aps to HBC. Google is a powerful tool use it.
