Mid-Canada Line, also known as the McGill Fence, was a line of
radar stations across the "middle" of Canada to provide early
warning of a Soviet bomber attack on North America. It was built to
supplement the less-advanced Pinetree Line, which was located
further south. The majority of Mid-Canada Line stations were used
only briefly from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s, as the attack
threat changed from bombers to ICBMs; the early warning role passed
almost entirely to the more capable DEW Line further north.
