What’s New Today

*The website has been updated with the “good news” story that the PEI Legislature supported a motion tabled by Liberal MLA Ron McKinley to ask the Government of Canada to put an 18-month moratorium on development of the Upton Farmlands. HOWEVER, folks, this is ONLY a moratorium, not a final decision to save the land as greenspace. Please keep up your support. Please continue to send letters to politicians and the media; to spread the word to your friends and neighbours; and ask your local candidates running in the provincial election where he or she stands on the issue.

    WOW – the people are speaking and the politicians are listening!

    While we haven’t lived there on a year-round basis for some time, we are first and foremost “Islanders” who care deeply about the well being and future of Prince Edward Island.

    It is gratifying to see elected government officials actually listen to the people and react accordingly.

    The Charlottetown City Council, Wes MacAleer, Wayne Collins and Shawn Murphy are to be congratulated for their response and efforts to halt the development of the Upton Farmland and prevent this real estate travesty.
    Prince Edward Islanders everywhere should be proud – and generations to come will be indebted to them and their foresight.

    Most of all, we want to thank the Upton Farm Preservation Network for all you are doing. Keep up the good work. We are confident you will succeed.
