Building more single family homes and luxury condos in a Canada’s poorest province
Martell Builders Green Homes in Moncton, sell like hotcakes
CBC is reporting that new home construction is down 9% for the Cornwall, Charlottetown and Stratford region.
Summerside however is booming with 32% increase in new home construction.

3 AM attempt to enter bedroom of sleeping teenager foiled by older sister
An unknown perpetrator attempted to enter a Charlottetown residence at 3 AM last night. The person, thought to be a young male or female, removed an outside screen on a basement window and jimmied the window open. The window was above the bed of a sleeping teenage female.
The perpetrator was attempting to enter and knocked over a Christmas candle decoration while moving the blinds aside. The person had pulled the cord to pull the blinds up facilitating their entrance.
The only light on in the room was a night light near the sleeping girl. Her older sister was in the far corner of the room browsing the internet. She turned around quickly and saw the hand and arm of a small male or female entering the room.
First off, let’s admit it’s a wonderful sunny day on PEI. Yesterday was so warm at 3 PM, I had to dig out last summer’s shorts and put them on. Today is a little colder but so nice out of the wind. Spring or summer is here.
I was downtown wheeling around in my wheelchair on errands. Surprisingly two offices I visited – IRAC and PEI Newcomers – don’t have automatic doors.
They should have their entrance doors with a button to make them accessible for the disabled. I wrote Moe Rogerson (IRAC) and Kevin Arsenault (PEI Newcomers) and asked them about it.
PEI Newcomers don’t trust the Internet. They have a web form to send them messages.
However, the web form has a captcha invented in a Frank Kafka nightmare. It is only three letters long. No matter what you enter it comes back “Validation string is not correct.”
Click on the image to see what happens. I tried it 5 or 6 times and got bored.
Maybe they get tired of whining Chinese immigrants who want help or their deposits back. Just put a little eternal loop in the email form and ipso presto – no annoying immigrant emails.
I asked Kevin about that too.
Update – November 27th, 2009 – Kevin told me to take him off my email contacts after I asked about the accessible door and now he is retiring to move on to greener pastures.
Pablo Victor Szerman plead guilty in Prince Edward Island Provincial Court on Tuesday September 29th, 2009 to assaulting the boy as he left the bus in May.
A paratransit bus is a minibus or van with wheelchair loading capacity which provides door-to-door transportation on demand of people with disabilities.
The boy, who is not identified due to his age, has a developmental and physical disability. He cannot control the amount of mucous that collects in his mouth and needs to spit from time to time. He attempted to clear his mouth while leaving the paratransit bus.
