Brimstone Head - Flat Earth Society claims one of four corners of world?

Here's an excerpt from Colombo's book:

“FOGO:   This small fishing community, on Fogo Island, off the northeastern coast, is mentioned by name in the popular folksong "I'se the B'y that Builds the Boat." The so-called Fogo Process was developed here in 1967 by the National Film Board and Memorial University. Film and video are used to stimulate individual and group action to foster desirable community change. Fogo Island holds a special place in the mythology of the Flat Earth Society, members of which maintain that the Earth is shaped like a pancake with an Edge or Great Abyss which may be sighted (weather permitting) at the North Pole or off Fogo Island. This at least is the belief of the Flat Earth Society as reconstituted in Fredericton, N.B., in 1973. (The original Flat Earth Society of Great Britain fell into desuetude some time earlier.) The Canadian founders included poet Alden Nowlan, philosopher Leo Ferrari, and writer Raymond Fraser. Several hundred people are members, including Eugene Ionesco. It was the poet Al Pittman who first sighted 'the Edge" off Fogo Island, and the intrepid Dr. Ferrari actually fell over the edge, or so he alleges, but saved himself by clutching on a projecting rock and pulling himself back, the only man alive known to have survived such an ordeal.
