This is a monument of Samuel De Champlain located in Isle La Motte, According to this site, he was an explorer and is an important figure in Canadian history. The location of this monument is thought to be the site where he first set his foot which is now Vermont. In the background is Lake Champlain.
This monument shows Samuel and what looks like an Indian on the left of him. In his right hand, he seems to be holding a spyglass. This to me seems, that he is eager to begin some sort of battle as he is dressed in military uniform. His posture resembles power.
