No defenders of the public good

The controversy over 'Plan B' continues, thanks to the sustained opposition of concerned citizens.

Several alternatives have been proposed, yet Premier Ghiz and his government have shown no willingness to consider modified versions.

There has been no mention of the significance of this part of the Island. Settled in the early 1800s by one of the largest landowners, Robert Bruce Stewart, the Strathgartney property (now a national historic site) straddled both sides of the road from the family cemetery down to the West River.

By flying in the face of such widespread non-partisan opposition, the provincial Liberals have lost their credibility as defenders of the public good. In forging ahead with this project, they have ignored the will of a majority of the population. They do not speak for the people. The people have spoken now and will do so more directly at the next provincial election.
