Mr Premier, much has been made of the willingness of your government to work with the other provincial parties for the good of Islanders. I believe such an opportunity is at hand. As all Islanders are aware, the effects of global warming are being felt around the globe, and are often impossi…

It is cautionary that a small group of people occupy so much space in the public square expressing vehement opposition to the basic human rights of Canadian citizens; rights such as the freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of thought and freedom of conscience. I refer to the posit…

Most Islanders have a strong sense of community and are quick to help their neighbour in need, but in our midst are a special group of Islanders who go way beyond the usual call to assist. They are the men and women of our volunteer rural fire fighting brigades.

Support for PR (MMP) by Islanders is now equal to sticking with the status quo of FPTP in how we mark our ballots. In fact Islanders made a significant step towards electing those other than the usual same old, same old to the legislature.

The first challenge for the new Conservative government, before the legislature even opens is going to be dealing with the bee importation. I just watched the swearing-in ceremony and we now have a provincial cabinet, but it is unfair to blueberry growers to delay any longer on the importati…

‘A Change is Gonna Come’ is a powerful song by the late Sam Cooke. We have a chance to live it - starting now. A minority government, often the fairest and most useful of governments. Finally, we have a clean slate, a blank canvas. I hope we will not fall into the old now it’s our turn menta…
