From one of our close neighbours.

Priorities 

The federal government says equalization and health and social transfers to P.E.I. will increase next year by $10 million to a total of $554 million. Sheridan was expecting another $10 million beyond that.


At the same time we are advised that our overlords are giving The Confederation Centre $1,500,000. The sheeple remain silent.

Buying a car

Over the past 30 years herself and I have purchased quite a few cars. As a result we we have explored all of the dealers between Summerside and Montague.  Most are the same. They want to sell you a car without regard to what you need or want. 

As herself is on a mission to replace her 8 year old van we have been making the rounds. 

Some years ago a friend recommended Ken Maclean at Kings County Chrysler. Firstly Ken is a nice guy. Soft spoken and attentive. After making the rounds of dealers Ken was the only one who listened.  He understood what herself wanted and made a effort to find what would work. He was not selling, he was helping her buy. It will be Spring before she buys but it will be from Ken. That will be the 4th vehicle purchased there and he has our recommendation.

The CBC is reporting A new P.E.I. beer boasting an alcohol level above 8 per cent will be sold in stores soon — a first for the province.


How easy to charge the rules when there is a vested interest.
