Editor: After watching seemingly endless news stories on floods from B.C. to New Brunswick, it’s getting a bit worrisome to see Premier Robert Ghiz and our provincial government skipping down to the Shania concert, singing “La-la-la, no worries on P.E.I.; party all year long.”
The Canadian Federation of Municipalities warns that aging infrastructure is going to place an enormous strain on government budgets over the next few decades as we struggle to hold back the wrath of Mother Nature. Just look at our roads and bridges and you’ll see we fare no better than any other province.
Now I like a party as much as the next person, but hopefully soon the powers that be will come back down to earth and take a serious look at preparing for the worst.
Or Shania will come back someday singing “Whose bed are your boots floating under?”
