1. Between 1608 and 1661, New France grew by an average
   of only 24 people each year.
2. The fur-trading merchants are a problem- they’re only
   interested in making money.
3. There are very few farmers in New France because the
   merchants discourage farming.
4. The colonists fear attack by the Iroquois.
5. The fur trade is losing money. The number of furs has been
   reduced to very little because the Iroquois are intercepting
   cargo along the rivers.
6. Officials in New France seem to be powerless to do
   anything.
7. New France is on its last legs.
