Excerpt from Message

Cape Trinity is formed of three immense peaks and on the summit of the nearest one stands the famous statue of “Our Lady of the Saguenay.” Charles Napolean Robitaille, one of the first commercial travelers who ever visited Saguenay was suddenly struck with an incurable disease on one of his journeys up the river. He made a vow that if he lived ten years longer he would erect a statue to the Virgin on Cape Trinity. He lived ten years and kept his promise, and in spite of his sickness lived still eight years more. The statue is 35 ft. high, and outer coating is heavy lead sheeting.
