Thanks IOU
You are right, , there are no mountains , in fact we are 5 mins from down town , and it's inside a big park surrounded by trees , the "Montreal Botanic Garden" .
It's in the "Olympic Stadium" area , and you can see the roof and it's mast in the background of this pic:

It looks a lil weird to have that in the background/sky , but I was lazy to paste some clounds over it
