To apply for some permanent government jobs a minimum number of hours of consecutive experience in the job is required. When a part-time employee is laid off, the number of experience hours resets to zero. However the length of employment of part-time employees varies at the discretion of management. This means one part-time employee’s work […]
Water is not flowing well near driveway at 200 Line Road – on the northeast side. It collects and can freeze on the road. Needs to be reviewed to determine appropriate course of action.
Where Toronto Road meets Rte 13 in Mayfield the south-bound traffic on Rte 13 is allowed to pass. However it is very difficult to see north-bound traffic that may be turning left onto Toronto Road. The suggestion is that south-bound traffic not be allowed to pass near this intersection. There have been several close calls […]
Food Premises Inspection Reports by the province confirm licensed food premises comply with the minimum standards of the Public Health Act and Food Premises Regulations. Food-service operations subject to annual inspection include all sit-in and take-out restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and markets, as well as food-service providers at special events. A history of inspection results can […]
Lyme disease is on PEI, and action needs to be taken to prevent it’s spread, enable diagnosis, and allow effective treatment. A 2017 scientific study conducted by biologist Dr. Vett Lloyd of Mt. Allison University confirms that P.E.I. is home to blacklegged ticks. For her study, over 350 blacklegged ticks were collected from across P.E.I. […]
The issue is concerning a lot in the center of the village of Emerald. The road adjacent was raised and this directs all the run-off from the Confederation Trail onto this land. Perhaps ditching can be put in place to prevent this.
The bridge right down the road from my house, is currently underweight restrictions and heavy trucks can’t go over it because it’s supposed to get replaced this fall (Transfer trucks) yet every day I see these trucks going over the bridge and tearing it down even more then it already is. Is there a way […]
Speeding of traffic through communities in District 18 is a safety concern. More “speed radar” signs are requested – at least one for every community – and a great RCMP presence. History Budget Estimates – Hansard: May 11, 2018 (page 31 of 52) http://www.assembly.pe.ca/sittings/2018spring/hansard/2018-05-11-hansard.pdf Mr. Trivers: Thank you, Chair. I’ve been waiting for this section to […]
I’ve been approached by a number of constituents and residents in the area of parcel PID 94722 at the junction of Matheson Lane and MacKay Lane, with concerns that their access through this property to the shore of the Trout River will be blocked. They have shown via deeds and research of the history of […]
Dear Brad Trivers, I have been concerned about there being only a crosswalk sign but no crosswalk painted on the road from Central Queens to Harmony House and the Hunter River Community Centre/ Library. Everyday I see people speeding on route 2. Lots of the time it takes 3 mins for me to wait for […]
Rte 13 north of the main intersection of Rte 2 in Hunter River needs a sidewalk, or at the very least wider shoulders. It is very dangerous and many people walk the stretch from Karla’s Country Villas into the town to access various service (Royal Bank, Pharmacy, By the River Bakery, Irving, Post Office, Community Centre, […]
Changes are planned to the “Boilers and Pressure Vessels Act Regulations” that will require all oil burner work to be done by license oil burner mechanics (important primarily because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning). This means they have to be a factory-trained technician in a specific type of oil burner, and/or have a […]
Will my assets be sold to cover the costs of Long Term Care for me or my spouse? ANSWER With regards to having to sell assets to pay for LTC the short answer is “no” – the assets of a person remain intact if they go into a nursing home, but any income they receive […]
At the Friday Morning Clinics in Hunter River they will take only 12 people, and so many try to be there at least a half hour before the door opens at 8:00am. People will line up outside the door to keep their spot in line, but on cold winter morning people often choose to stay […]
My wife is currently a patient at the Palliative care facility in Charlottetown. With the exceptional good weather over the last month I have been taking my wife out for walks in her wheelchair. I am amazed that a cross walk across Murchinson Lane at the entrance into this facility doesn’t exist. But they are […]
Dust on Houston Road is causing problems for Mayfield Country Cottages, Mayfield Country Market and local residents. Ideally the road would be paved, but in the interim applying calcium to the entire road near the businesses and residences early and often would suffice.
Hey Brad, I was driving down Rt 13 today, as I do every day, and I am really surprised by the new highish voltage power lines being added. The road is now lined with what appears to be marching men and it looks like this is going straight through the heart of the New Glasgow? […]
People park at the North Rustico Harbour, especially on Breakwater Road, to get access to the beach (free). The road narrows down to one lane, is sometimes blocked. This causes problems for locals in accessing their property, and there are many times where a fire truck or ambulance may not be able to get through […]
Brad, you said, “I believe that in the very near future with advances in power storage it will be feasible for communities to generate all of their own electricity through clean renewable means – like wind, solar and hydro. Government needs to plan for and proactively work towards a future of inexpensive locally produced clean […]
“Traffic safety is issue on Rte 2, especially East of Hunter River. For example, see video with cars not stopping for school bus. Another specific problem is accessing the driveways on the downside of the hill going into Charlottetown from Hunter River – I have a letter from former MLA Bertram indicating she would look […]
Hi, I moved to Stanley Bridge PEI six months ago. Not sure if this is the right place to raise this issue but it’s worth a try. We are currently on DSL Internet with Bell Aliant and was hoping to eventually have access to the High Speed Fibre which is running on our road on […]
‘Granville “Big Boot Gun Club” shooting range. Will amalgamation of the land enable by-laws to ban shooting range, or will IRAC ruling still apply?’ Resolution Although the “amalgamation” question remains, the gun range has agreed to make the following changes: range will close by 7:00pm at the latest only small caliber guns (.22) and hand guns […]
Safer north-south corridor and coastal bike routes; increased tourism focus Resolution This issue has been brought up a number of times in the legislature by MLA’s of all political stripes. Indications from the Minister of Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy are that the federal money available for collector roads like Rte 13, Rte 6 and Rte […]
It seems that the community of Rusticoville is no longer recognized by the Department of Transportation (and perhaps the provincial government as a whole) when drivers licenses are issued. Instead the community of Anglo Rustico is used. This is a concern for the residents of the community of Rusticoville. Note that Google Maps recognizes this […]
