The Federated Women’s Institute of PEI is a highly-esteemed provincial educational organization focusing on the family, personal growth and community action.The Institute recently sent this e-mail to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Robert Ghiz, Mayor Clifford Lee and several others. We thank the Women’s Institute for its support and hope our provincial and federal leaders heed the wise words included in its e-mail:

Re: Preservation of Upton Farm, the former research land by the North River on the Trans Canada Highway in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island  

This email is in support of preserving Upton Farm as a green belt, free of urban development. This area of land is located on both sides of the Trans Canada Highway between the North River Causeway and the traffic light by Upton Road and was originally part of the Federal Agricultural Research Farm.The Federated Women’s Institute of Prince Edward Island strongly supports keeping this piece of land as a green space for all Islanders and visitors to enjoy for years to come. The value of this pristine piece of property is immeasurable and it is paramount that it is preserved for future generations.

Your support is appreciated as we strive to preserve a part of our heritage and a legacy for our children.

Marie Kenny, President
