Proportional Representation System Information Session:

Our Island is a great place to live and when we move to a Proportional Representation System it will be even better! Decisions on our healthcare, environment, education, infrastructure planning and other issues, will be made by elected representatives that reflect who Islanders voted for.   The PEI Coalition for Proportional Representation invites the public to learn more at the upcoming information session on Tuesday, October 11, at 7:00 pm at Montague Regional High School Cafeteria, regarding the upcoming vote.  Refreshments will be served from 6:30pm to 7:00pm.
