At a glance one might applaud the Provincial Government for introducing a grant to increase Honey Bee populations on the island. See their latest grant proposal “Pollination Expansion Program 2017-18”. This is aimed at increasing the PEI honey bee colonies available for the fruit crops pollination, Apples and Blueberry crops???
However, why do we have a shortage of the bee population in the first place? Could it possibly be to do with the two major corporations and their policy of using poisonous chemicals to grow their potato crops. Could it have anything to do with the many species already lost to these chemicals. We already know the answer to those two questions! The big question is this, why can so many Islanders see this, yet our elected officials can’t or maybe don’t want to see? If elected officials do not heed the people then they should be promptly removed from office. Hard to refer to these people as Honourable members when they ignore the real issues. Is this not a bit of a FARCE?????
God Bless and keep reading
