Samuel de Champlain's Legacy
This is Samuel de Champlain's statue in Quebec City. It shows the pride that the French Canadian's feel in Samuel de Champlain and his iconic status as the founder of New France. He will always remain an important figure to French Canadians because of all he accomplished in starting their presence in Canada, and they will always view him as the father of their people.
This picture is of a different Champlain statue, in Ottawa, the Capital City of Canada.
