Favorite thing: You will find this statue at Nepean Point, a hill in Ottawa, overlooking the Ottawa River, located between the National Gallery of Canada and Alexandra Bridge.

Samuel de Champlain was a French navigator, cartographer, draughtsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat, and chronicler.

He founded New France and Quebec City on 1608.

Fondest memory: Many places, streets, and structures in northeastern North America bear his name, or have monuments established in Samuel de Champlain's memory.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
