Liberals have lost their way

Governing is complicated and involves difficult decisions every day on such things as spending priorities. Meeting unlimited needs with limited resources requires that hard choices be made, but the recent revelations regarding $5 million left unspent by the department of community services and seniors at a time when one in five Island children is food insecure, is inexplicably shameful.

Deficit numbers misleading says Green Party

Wes Sheridan is once more claiming to be steering our province’s finances to a safe and secure place. He cites the recent audited financial statements, where the annual deficit is estimated to be $45.8 million as good news for PEI. This is apparently $13 million less than he had anticipated, and therefore, we should all be celebrating the province’s “march” (more like a stumble or lurch) towards fiscal balance.

New approach to Health and Wellness required, says Green Party

The Green Party of Prince Edward Island wonders why it has taken over seven years for Doug Currie and the department of Health and Wellness to come up with their three year wellness strategy.

With disease, you have acute and chronic problems; an acute problem like a heart attack requires immediate attention, a chronic illness needs a different approach.

Green Party agriculture policy not "developed in a vacuum."

For executive director of the Federation of Agriculture John Jamieson to conclude, as he did in comments today, that the Green Party agricultural policy is being forged in a vacuum, is arrogance of the highest order. It suggests that the Federation of Agriculture represents the one and only source of information on agricultural policy on PEI, and without it, one is working blind.

Green Party leader questions claims of outgoing Ministers

Green Party of Prince Edward Island leader, Peter Bevan-Baker is questioning the self-serving claims of outgoing ministers Sheridan and Webster as they announced their retirement from politics.

“For Wes Sheridan and George Webster to offer Islanders their slanted self-assessment, and to speak proudly of their accomplishments while holding the financial and agricultural portfolios does not bear up to scrutiny,” said Bevan-Baker.
