The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

When I’m teaching the UPEI course on ecological forestry, I begin the section on Biological Diversity with a lovely picture of a lion. I use the image to get the students thinking about what diversity actually means. At the most ridiculous end of the spectrum is the idea of a zoo.

The St. Lawrence

The St. Lawrence
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

Time Travel, the long awaited album by celebrated Canadian songwriter, Lennie Gallant, takes us on a trip that delves into journeys of the heart, our time on the planet, place in the universe, ancient legends, road stories and an oddly confused ghost.
