Try The Sears Mall Parking Lot...it's free

Ed, if you're giving away free lobster you're welcome to use our mall parking lot at Sears for free. Just give me a call and we'll help you get it set up.
Lobster giveaway postponed
The Guardian
SOURIS – The free lobster give-away planned for Wednesday afternoon has been put on hold after fishermen were unable to secure the use of the Charlottetown Mall parking lot for the event. Fishermen from the Eastern Kings region spearheaded the action in protest of the low prices they are receiving for their catches at a time when costs of fishing have skyrocketed to an all time high."Prices this year are the lowest in years, causing serious financial burden to many fishers in the province," says Ed Frenette executive director of the P.E.I. Fishermen’s Association. He said the lobster men had suggested the give away as a means of attracting public support for their efforts to attain higher prices. "Fishermen are certainly in a bind and need the public’s support," he said."Low shore prices affect every part of our rural economy and touch every Islander in one way or another, and public pressure on large processors to pay a fair price can help everyone," he said. What future actions may take place is now under discussion, said Frenette.

You are a Land Developer-Realtor?
WOW. Good for You Tim Banks. Very good for you!
It's the 1st time for me, on Your blog. The initial blog I read was on how You dropped out @ Grade 10 and your Dad's Service Station.
Mr. Banks, I believe that YOU, would make a positive impact, if You could and would find a way to go and Reach Out, to speak to Students and Adults in regard to Your life's experience, encouraging them to realize it's the Person who goes back to school whether it be an Adult or a Teen, to Learn, to Educate themselves, to give the gift of Education to themselves. The rest will fall in place to enhnace their Lives of the people who, 'get-it.'

Strangley on PEI, these people don't comprehend, It IS the people who go back to school, no matter their age, Who ARE looked up to.
Sadly, there IS alot of low self-esteem on Prince Edward Island.
AND, you know, you can't blame them because of the antiquated System on PEI, designed to kick them in the face to destroy any amount of positive self-esteem they have.

What do You, Mr. Banks have to say about that?
