Editor: Jim Sentance, UPEI associate professor of economics wrote paragraphs to say: “ the current set-up of the P.E.I. EI region is an aberration of some sort and in fact is a distortion or misrepresentation.” Ottawa is giving P.E.I. unusual treatment to help Minister Shea retain her seat next year. Harper has zeroed in on the Island and he will continue to cut transfers and EI programs which will drive workers to the West to survive the cuts. Harper is the enemy and we should not reward him with any seats at the next election.
