Results of the survey

Do you think P.E.I. should be involved in lobbying for upgrades to Highway 16 in N.B., the section of the Trans-Canada Highway that runs from the Port Elgin roundabout to the Confederation Bridge?

  • 9% Yes. P.E.I. should be involved in lobbying for the upgrades but not until after New Brunswick's provincial election.
