Jean, VE9ZD posted a comment on the blog about the upcoming Field Day operation from Mount Carlton Provincial Park. Here’s his comment reposted here:

A group of Eastern Canadian Hams will be operating Field Day 2010 from atop Mount Carlton Provincial Park located in the Province of New Brunswick Canada. The summit is the highest point in the Maritime Provinces

Here are some of the coordinates:
