Condo development com­ing to town

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

An in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence hosted by UPEI’s in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary Asian stud­ies pro­gram wraps up to­day in the Main Build­ing’s fac­ulty lounge.

The con­fer­ence, “Good and Evil in Korean Phi­los­o­phy, Re­li­gion, and Spir­i­tu­al­ity: Korean Ideas and their Global Im­pli­ca­tions,” in­cludes five pan­els fea­tur­ing 16 schol­ars from Korea, Ja­pan, Canada, and the U.S.

They will dis­cuss Bud­dhism, Con­fu­cian­ism, Chris­tian­ity and related top­ics, com­par­a­tive stud­ies and Ja­pan’s “Ky­oto School” (Zen and com­par­a­tive phi­los­o­phy/the­ol­ogy).

“This con­fer­ence will help us to strengthen UPEI’s in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion, ex­pand its global ex­change and part­ner­ship and re­cruit more in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from Asian coun­tries,” said Ed­ward Chung, Asian stud­ies and Korean stud­ies pro­ject di­rec­tor at UPEI.

A per­mit to con­struct a 48-unit con­do­minium development in Strat­ford has been ap­proved.

Coun­cil ap­proved an ap­pli­ca­tion from Mar­shall MacPher­son Ltd. to con­struct the development, which will see two 18-unit, three-storey build­ings and one 12-unit, three-storey build­ing con­structed on Shake­speare Drive.
