"Jean Vauquelin (1728-1772)"
A French naval officer that showed bravery on the St Lawrence River among other places,
at a time when France still cared about its colony in North America...
Wiki has a short biography for him.
Did the man know he'd eventually get a monument to his name?
I somehow doubt that he cared much about such details;
but there it is,
standing right next to City Hall,
on Place Vauquelin.
I've combined a view of each side and front to give you some idea of its details.
A beautiful monument of a brave man that died young...
by our current standards.
