Another Island First


I think its good to live in a Province that can claim to have first’s in more than one area! Here on Prince Edward Island we have at least two firsts. I wonder if we should applaud our Liberal Government for this success.  Yes, we should, they are indeed responsible for our perceived accomplishments. Unfortunately our firsts are not achievements we can brag about. Lets have a look at the two Island first claims.

 

 

Fish kill Capital of Canada, not the sort of claim one can be proud of.

 

The next is Roundabout Capital of Canada, Patronage comes to mind for this achievement?

 

Sadly we could have achieved a very good first if only the Premier had had the good sense to grasp it.

 

The majority of islanders voted in a plebiscite to change our dated FPTP election system to Proportional Representation.  MacLauchlan said the vote was too low. The same guy won the last majority election with a mere 39% of the vote, but wasn’t concerned that was too low???

Lets hope these facts lead to a change in our island policies and the old political party’s that rule. My advice is vote Green in the next election, if not your colour then try Orange!

Anything but Red or Blue!

God Bless and keep reading
