Residents of Charlottetown – Brighton:
Thank you for taking the time to meet with John Abbott and share your concerns about issues affecting Charlottetown – Brighton. We are listening.
Many of you have told John you are concerned about the proposed development of Upton Farm. We share your concern. We have a unique opportunity to protect this land as green space that may be enjoyed by everyone.
Last month, I wrote the federal Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities urging the federal government to freeze development of Upton Farm. That freeze is now in effect.
A PC Government will actively work to preserve Upton Farm as green space. Upton Farm is located at the gateway to Charlottetown and we believe that all Islanders should have the opportunity to share in its unique landscape. Residents in nearby neighbourhoods such as Brighton will particularly benefit from the preservation of Upton Farm’s natural beauty.
We welcome your input on this and other issues affecting Charlottetown – Brighton.
Pat Binns, Premier &
John Abbott, PC Candidate District 13, Charlottetown-Brighton
