On the left, a partial view of the Mount-Radar, called thus, because during the Cold war, of 1952 to 1964, a military base of communication managed by Royal Canadian Air Force is installed there. Its role is to constitute a shield of observation and communication.

Between 1951 and 1964, the population made up of soldiers, built a community equipped with a school, trades, a place of worship, a sports hall, and social centre.

This type of base on the ground was dismantled with the profit of the satellites and the Canadian army completed the dismantling of the Mount Radar in 1967.
