Other Information

Named in association with nearby Mount St. Andrews. Campbell (unaware that the name referred to a church in Ottawa), assumed that "Mount St. Andrew" [sic] was a direct reference to the patron saint of England, and named nearby Mount St. George and Mount St. Patrick after the patron saints of Scotland and Ireland, respectively; Mount St. David, referring to the patron saint of Wales, was designated in 1958.
