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.

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.

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, […]
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.
