Improve waste disposal drop-off centers
Waste and compost above and beyond what can be picked up at residences can be taken to Waste Watch Drop-off Centers (WWDC) such as the New London dump.

Clay roads in bad condition in spring
There are several clay roads that are in rough condition during the spring thaw each year (e.g. Centre Road, Hazel Grove Rd, Junction Rd – Rte 227 south of Fredericton Station Rd). In particular roads that are traveled by school buses need additional work to ensure they are passable without undue stress on buses (e.g. […]
Consultation policies of Dept of Environment and Dept of Transportation?
Question stemming from the Maritime Electric new substation and power transmission line on Smith Road / Millvale Road / St. Mary’s Road: “Dept of Environment and Dept of Transportation are the departments involved – what are their consultation policies?

Electricity price increase charged for full billing period
When an increase in electricity rates occurs the entire bill that encompasses the rate increase date has the increase applied to it.

Busing to co-op locations at Bluefield High School unfair
Students who are part of the co-operative work study program at Bluefield High School go to work in the afternoon. The issue is that students working in Cornwall, Charlottetown and Winsloe are bused to their workplace, but those working in other locations must find their own transportation. In all cases the students must find their […]
Recognize PTSD as a work-related occupational disease
For occupations like paramedics, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not recognized as a work-related occupational disease by the Workers Compensation Board (WCB). This means that those afflicted by PTSD cannot receive compensation for the WCB. Given the reality of PTSD in professions that deal with trauma, this should be recognized. Notes Met with paramedic Jason […]
Rte 239 – Civic number conflict – rename to St Patrick’s Road South
The name of St. Patrick’s Road was used for decades on the sign at Rte 2 just west of Hunter River, but four years ago they changed it to Rte 239. As it ends up the province had made a mistake because further down on Rte 239 is another section called “St. Patrick’s Road” and there […]

Need transportation-specific energy incentives
The transportation sector is the biggest contributor to PEI’s carbon emissions at around 40% – and about 36% of total energy consumption on the Island. Energy incentives are needed to encourage consumers to move to transportation options that produce less carbon emissions. For example, the Ontario government has an Electric Vehicle Incentive Program. References Office of […]
Remove HST from electricity
Removing the provincial portion of the HST from electricity should be done because: only GST is charged on on heating oil electricity is the main output of renewable energy sources and a switch away to electricity from non-rewneable energy sources should be encouraged electricity is used by all Islanders and is a basic need that […]
Will UPEI reduce pensions?
Rumours are out that UPEI will reduce pensions by using something other than the best 3 years of wages as the basis for pension payments. Those receiving pensions from UPEI have planned their retirement around the existing pension amounts, and it is unfair and wrong to make these sort of changes.
Taxi service needed in North Rustico
“A taxi service is much needed in North Rustico. Especially, this would give freedom to those who cannot drive – much needed especially for seniors to seek medical treatment and food.” Notes from Brad This sort of service would be great not only in North Rustico, but in most of District 18.

Funding for Senior’s fitness programs needed
The cost of attending fitness programs is prohibitive for many seniors, who want to attend fitness classes, but cannot afford too.

Improve Brookvale Ski Park and eliminate $380,000 per year cost to taxpayers
“Why can’t Brookvale Ski Park operate with a profit? It is forecasted to lose $380,900 in the 2015-2016 budget. For example if the Lodge was renovated with a licensed restaurant like most other ski hills it should be able to generate additional revenue. Also, to improve customer service, on busy days 4 passengers per chair lift […]
