P.E.I. must do more to respect rural governments 

Credit:  Letter | The Cape Breton Post | August 27, 2021 | www.saltwire.com ~~

Monday’s Guardian illuminated the difficulties of governing in Crapaud and other small rural communities (Left in the dark, Aug. 23).

Certainly scarce financial resources play a role and sometimes there may be a conflict of personalities. We should all acknowledge the time and commitment our councillor neighbours devote to the task of making our communities a better place. Our province needs to acknowledge the importance of rural councils and their role in insuring rural communities stay vibrant and their voices are heard.

In Eastern P.E.I., the P.E.I. Energy Corp. applied to erect seven more “super wind turbines” in an environmentally sensitive area. After due diligence, the Rural Municipality of Eastern Kings (RMEK) voted to deny the permit stating it was not in keeping with the character and environment of the community.

After an appeal in which the P.E.I. Energy Corp blasted the local council as not being competent to decide what’s best for their community, we are now awaiting IRAC to make the determination. If RMEK Council is overruled by government or IRAC it will be catastrophic for local governance and community.

Alanna M. Smith,

East Baltic, P.E.I.
