Here are the results of the poll.

Because our results are rounded, a single vote may not seem to affect the percentages below. Rest assured it does count for the calculation of the results.

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?

  • 54% Yes. That portion of the highway is important to our tourism as well as to Islanders who use it every day.
  • 35% No. P.E.I. has more than enough roads needing upgrades without worrying about New Brunswick's roads.
  • 9% Yes. P.E.I. should be involved in lobbying for the upgrades but not until after New Brunswick's provincial election.
