A diverse future

We are living through a unique time in the history of Prince Edward Island. Never before have so many people from so many different places around the world chosen to move here.

During the past two years, more than 4,200 people from over 100 countries have registered for services with the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada. Slightly less than half have come from China. The

At the heart

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

If life had an official vegetable, I believe it should be the kohlrabi. When it is young, it is green and tender and vulnerable. Its skin has not hardened; it doesn’t take much to pierce its defenseless heart. But meet up with a kohlrabi in winter and you meet something else. The skin is tougher, the flesh gives a little more resistance. But you know what? It’s still delicious. It still has the same sweet heart.

Profile: Glen Strickey

by Jane Ledwell

Little did Glen Strickey know as an eager-beaver twelve-year-old that some of his uncle’s Sunday afternoon jam-session guests, who welcomed him to play saxophone with them, were world-famous musicians like Oscar Peterson or Oliver Jones.

It may be Saturday nights in Charlottetown, rather than Sundays in Cape Breton, but Glen still plays his saxophone with

Holidays at the Market
The New Creative

by Cassandra Bernard

The Christmas season is a busy time of the year, and the owners of Kent Street Market in Downtown Charlottetown want to take away some of the pressures of holiday cooking and hosting.

Having opened less than five months ago, Mila MacLean Homburg and Phil Homburg are noticing more and more customers in the store and leaving happy with gourmet and

Hello winter

Hello winter

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Well, hello winter! One day we were blithely raking leaves in t-shirts and shorts, and the next day we were bundling up against a fierce north wind and brushing snow from our doorsteps. It would be nice to blame Daylight Savings Time for all this, but of course that can’t be true. Fortunately our stunningly beautiful fall weather gave everyone, from farmers and

Plaintiff

Plaintiff
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

Aged 17- to 21-years-old, the boys in Plaintiff might be young, but it’s easy to imagine them growing into a force to be reckoned with, particularly among Charlottetown’s metal scene.

Plaintiff is Tanner Peardon (drums), Tyler Turner (bass), Liam Farrell (guitar), and Chris Gallant (vocals).

The four-member post-metal group is still young, only having gotten

New perspective

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Review by Ivy Wigmore

The Canada 150 performance had me seeing the PEI Symphony Orchestra from a whole new perspective—from behind, to be specific. In the second concert of the PEISO’s fiftieth season, the orchestra collaborated with many diverse elements. One was the Confederation Singers, of which I am a member.

Soooo…the choir has been working hard and I promised this

Find of the month: Poutine at Papa Joe’s

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For my money, good old reliable Papa Joe’s has one of the most interesting menus in town. Sure, you can get something expected and comforting. But you can also be surprised and delighted by my new favourite thing: bar clams and chips.

This is PEI’s answer to poutine. Do not mistake this for fried clams; it’s entirely different. The clams are like they would be for chowder
