Viking Voyage

Mary MacKay, a veteran of The Guardian's lifestyles department, is sharing her Viking Voyage with TC Media readers as she follows the path of early Norse explorers hunting for Vinland.

MacKay is joining Prince Edward Island mariner Geoff Ralling on his sailing quest to retrace the seaward steps the Vikings took 1,000 years ago when they sailed from Greenland and discovered the New World.

First of all the flag is all wrong second it was the Danes not the Norwegians,plus they set sail from Iceland not Greenland.Why?because they ran out of "Wine" and my great great way back uncle Leif Eriksen was sent over to get the booze and also get some entertainer like Ray Charles he was busy so they brought back Steve Wonder and that's a fact.lol

Cyclist paralyzed September 27, 2016

On Aug. 1, 2015, Jordan Arsenault-Loeman of St. John, N.B. was driving in Charlottetown, making a left turn off Brackley Point Road onto Ellis Road, beside Buns and Things bakery in Charlottetown.

In doing so, he came into collision with bicyclist Alan Stanley who was cruising down the Brackley Point Road hill towards town.

Stanley is now living with paralysis as a result of the collision.

Arsenault-Loeman was charged with making an unsafe turn and a trial was held, a preliminary legal journey that also includes a civil lawsuit against him.
