‘WWF Goes to Charlottetown (1992)’

Film Friday: Come Play on our Island (1998)

G'day there! Do you remember 1998? It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago really, until you stop and think about it. But it was. Nearly two decades, and in another millennium to boot. And boy oh boy,... Continue Reading →

Film Friday: ‘Island Romance’

G'day there! It's a question nearly as old as time itself: What happens when a city girl far from the bright lights of Winnipeg is wooed by a dashing young farmer-fisherman from the Island's North Shore? That's what you'll find... Continue Reading →

Film Friday: ‘History of the Ice Boats’

Film Friday: The ‘Abby’

G'day there! Today I keep things brief. Honestly. I do so mostly because it's Film Friday and that's the point of Film Friday; and also because I've been plagued by a bout of insomnia for most of the week now,... Continue Reading →

Film Friday: Charlottetown, 1864 – Why Does It Matter?

G'day there! It's September 2 today. The second of September. Can someone please tell me where the bleedin' heck August went? Or July, for that matter? I feel like we should be printing 'missing' adverts on milk cartons. Christ, I was... Continue Reading →
