The challenge is ours alone. Together. There are moments during these troubled times when I fear for the future of our little province. We are 160,000 residents on a tiny island with locked down borders. We are the only market for most of the multiple small family farms and grocery stores, local butchers, bakers, bistros, breweries and scores of other small business operators. They are all competing for the same finite dollars to feed their families and pay their bills. The message is clear. Shop local. Shop often.
