Correct me if I'm wrong, I don't see the original poster inquiring about litter, or snow removal between communities. I don't see how this helps.

Having lived in both Summerside & Charlottetown, one of the big differences that I notice is the lack of places to eat in Summerside. As part of my job I used to organize lunch meetings for groups of 10-15 people all across PEI. Very few places to do this in Summerside other than the loyalist.... Charlottetown has numerous.


Agreed. But then the population of the Charlottetown area is three times the size of Summerside's too, so naturally there will be more options.

Just like Summerside has more options than Tignish, Kensington, Montague or Souris :)


You would think, but I've found it easier to book restaurants in smaller communities than in Summerside.... Seems to be mainly fast food places in Summerside.

Yes, and in fact, I "often" did it myself. Still do. Sorry for having pride in my community and caring about the environment.

Summersiders don't have to shovel the streets themselves. The city does a great job of it all on their own. I remember seeing something in the paper about 7 or 8 years ago saying that Summerside had twice as many sidewalk plows and snowblowers as did Charlottetown (a city three times the size). And most of Summerside's sidwalk plows and sanders were equiped with trailers that distributed sand or salt as the conditions warranted.

You can quote this typical "Charlottonian" anytime when I say "let government (or someone else) do it". I don't know about you, but when we pay as much taxes as we do, I don't blame people for expecting to have a clean city without having to pick up some idiot's garbage that shouldn't have been put there in the first place.


Thanks for the additional evidence about the difference between the two places :wink:

But, please forgive this relatively new Charlottonian, for expressing a little bit of pride in his new city of residence by helping keep it looking attractive by occasionally picking up other people's litter and by not putting my garbage at roadside to fester for weeks before the cleanup week :)

Understood. But perhaps if one poster had not denigrated one community, this particular discussion would not have erupted :wink:

No need to apologize. People express their pride in different ways. I applaud your dedication.

Well *toot toot*.

I never said people in Summerside shovel the streets themselves nor did I say the snow removal in Charlottetown was better than Summerside's. I am simply asking whether tax payers should adopt the same attitude and do it ourselves (i.e. take it up the behind) or demand that these basic services that we already pay for get done?

It's a typical and predictable direction for many threads on this topic. Everyone is entitled to their opinion however accurate or inaccurate those opinions are.

/laugh

I am sure of it... good friends of ours (daughters Godparents) are from there (Summerside) originally, and they have nothing but glowing things to say.

I have yet to visit the Island, but I know I will love it when I do, whether it is to live, or just to be a tourist..

:lol:

Pride in one's home, or the city where one's home is located, has to start somewhere.

Brothers Two. Linkletter. Gentleman Jim's. The Regent. Slemon Park. Katrina's.

All have facilities to hold business luncheons.

And I'm sure that I am forgetting some.



Last time I called the Brothers 2 they were closed. I think they've become seasonal now. Tried GJ's but it's so crowded with seniors at lunchtime that it's hard to actually conduct any business. Is the regent still open? Slemon Park is a good idea I'll check into that one next time. Good for people coming from western PEI too. Is Katrina's in Slemon Park. Never heard of it.

The Regent has changed names a couple of times since then, I'm not sure about where Katrina's is either.

It may not be called Katrina's any more (and it may not be that great anymore ... or even still in business) ... it is in that hotel across the Highway from the flea market in St. Eleanor's.

GJ's has private rooms for luncheons (or used to) ... are the seniors booking those up too?

I will admit that I am a bit out of touch ... it has been 6 years since I moved to C'twn.

Linkletter's (or whatever it is called now) and the Regent (whatever it is called now) is where my (former) Summerside employer used to hold all their lunch functions since they had the "banquet" rooms for such things.

The Loyalist, Brother's Two, The Silver Fox Club, Linkletter Inn and convention Centre, Gentleman Jim's, O'Ryan's Pub, Anson's (Slemon Park) and I believe the new wellness centre will also have capacity for lunch meetings or larger gatherings.

I agree with Kreskin in that Summersiders have great pride in their city, and I believe the mayor has a lot to do with that.

And I pick up litter too, K. Especially if it's on the beach ~ can't stand litter on the beach! There is nothing shameful about cleaning up your community.
