Ile d'Entree a small all grassland Island (4km long X 2.5km wide) is the only community in the archipelago of Iles-de-la-Madeleine that is not attached by land or bridge. Today the Island is an Anglophone lobster fishing community with approx 126 people.
The western half, fenced-off with an electrified fence, is home to all the Hills.
The Highest Point on the Iles-de-la-Madeleine, lives up to its name "Big Hill" given by the locals. Most references puts the elevation at 174 meters, however the spot elevation on Quebec's Natural Resources Topographic Map (11N05-200-0102), 1CM = 200M with 10M contours, is given as 169M. All the entered data comes from these Maps.
The BM on the summit embedded in a concrete pedestal reads "Geodetic Survey of Canada", unfortunately without an elevation or reference number.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
