Trip to Is­land wel­come re­lief

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I re­cently re­turned from a three­night trip to the is­land and wanted to rec­og­nize all the Parks Canada, ho­tel, restau­rant, and tourism staff for a won­der­ful stay. Ev­ery­one was friendly, help­ful, and in­for­ma­tive. The Is­land is beau­ti­ful, and the weather pro­vided a wel­come re­lief from the heat and hu­mid­ity of the U.S.’s North­east sum­mer.

I was in town for Canada Day, (I found out af­ter book­ing, but be­fore ar­riv­ing), and thor­oughly en­joyed the con­fed­er­a­tion cel­e­bra­tion. The free ad­mis­sion to Parks Canada sites was a wel­come treat. I plan to re­turn again soon.

I was in­trigued by how many lo­cals asked me about the U.S. po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion (you may have heard that things here are a bit con­tro­ver­sial now). My re­sponse was, we get what we de­serve, but I worry about Canada, since they will get the fall out of any chaos.

It was a won­der­ful trip. Ray­mond Finkel, Philadel­phia, PA.
