Best Answer

Samuel Champlain treated the natives with more respect, and co-operated, in return receiving their help and trade. Cartier had treated the natives with disrespect, by kidnapping them and other ways. As a result, they were more hostile towards him and did not provide aid to his explorations and trade. Champlain also had the advantage of being a cartographer (a map drawer), thus navigating better than Cartier.

France based its claim to territory in what is now Canada on the explorations of who?

In 1524, Giovanni da Verranzano explored the New World for France. He searched for a route to the Indies through the continent. Verranzano sailed up and down the East Coast of America looking for a passage that would take him further west. He could not find one so he returned, making no distinct claim for France. Some historians say French explorer Jacques Cartier accompanied Verranzano to the New World. In 1534 Cartier tried to find a sea passage to the East Indies through North America. He could not find a river that would take ships west from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Instead he discovered the St. Lawrence River. The St. Lawrence River ended much sooner than Cartier expected. It ended on a high hill which Cartier named Mont Real or King's Mountain in honor of the King of France. Mont Real later became Montreal. Cartier named the area New France and claimed it in the name of the King of France. This discovery opened Canada for Europeans wanting to settle in North America. Cartier took colonists to Cape Rouge near Quebec. The colony was a failure. After this France lost interest in Canada. It would be more than 70 years before another Frenchman came to the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. Cartier never discovered the North West Passage, but his explorations allowed France to claim the Area, which is now Canada.
