Perfect end to perfect fishing trip

A beautiful sunset several miles off Covehead Harbour. Photo taken┬áduring an early evening deep sea fishing trip with friends and family (Richard’s Deep Sea Fishing). I managed to land two mackerel while everyone else filled the boat with fish.


Sanctions could benefit farmer’s markets

By Jim Brown

Russia’s heavy-handed sanctions targeting Canadian agricultural products could yet have a silver lining. I would imagine farmer’s markets across the country, including here in PEI, could benefit from more pork. Pork producers could lose as much as 10 per cent of their sales initially, sending prices into a tailspin and forcing them to look for new markets they may have considered too small, too niche, in the past.
