One of my favorite spots on Prince Edward Island is Strathgartney Provincial Park. Home to a wonderful nature trail and a rare stand of beechwood trees, it is one of the province's most beautiful areas. Now it appears that Premier Robert Ghiz intends to redirect the Trans-Canada Highway through the park. Why would he do that? No reason has been given publicly, but it appears to be motivated purely by a desire to tap into federal infrastructure funding in order to provide some local short-term jobs.
Please consider signing this online petition. If you're on Prince Edward Island, there are plans to hold a rally at Province House this Tuesday (October 25th) at 12:15 PM.
