It was with very mixed emotions that we left PEI. We love it very much there but found the call to return home to BC to be stronger. We have many fond memories of our time on the Island. The red earth, the windy days, the coldness of the cold, the smell of the air, the kind people, the great potatoes and lobster, the smallness of the Island and much, much more. In the end though, the broader number of business opportunities in the West prevailed and so we decided to return to beautiful BC. We leave behind many friends and business colleagues who we will miss very much.
I have promised my PEI colleagues that I will continue to strongly advocate for enhanced early childhood education, health care and education services on the Island. So, even though I will primarily be based in the West now, my blog will continue to follow PEI issues and I will also advocate for the changes that are necessary to make PEI a place that truly provides the types of supports and services that all women, children and families deserve.
We have decided to move to Tsawwassen, which is based in the Lower Mainland of BC. We have literally gone from one end of the country to the other. It is a lovely area and we are a surrounded by the ocean on three sides of the community. I found a great little slide show online that shows off Tsawwassen and the surrounding area that we are now living in.
So….thanks to everyone on PEI. We may be gone from the Island – but none of you are forgotten. I know that at some point in the future we will be back to visit.
