Also the beaver is an unaggressive, hard-working, unassuming and willing animal and as Canada holds the reputation of being a peace keeping country that's where the unaggressiveness of the beaver comes in to representing Canada. With the beaver being willing it represents Canada in the World Wars
and how even though they were trying to become independent from Great Britain they still were willing to help the British. Just like the beavers are willing to keep on making and fixing their damns after they get destroyed.
I also chose the Beaver as it is the animal that is on our nickel which represents our money system which shows our country has power because we have money to support our country.
