O'LEARY – Town Council here will notify Canada Post it does not agree with the postal corporation’s plan of terminating Saturday morning counter service in O’Leary. “We’re the service hub of West Prince,” Councillor Davis Gallant said in insisting the service should be maintained.  

EI change good for O’Leary’s seasonal workforce

Council added its support to Employment Insurance changes, recently announced by Egmont MP and Fisheries and Oceans Minister Gail Shea, which will take place in October, effectively dividing P.E.I. into two EI zones.

Mayor Stanley MacDonald said the change will benefit seasonal workers.

“How much more seasonal can you get?” he said, noting O’Leary’s economy is built around farming, fishing and tourism.

Run that one up the flagpole

If a 50-foot flagpole and a gigantic seven and a half by 15-foot Canadain flag becomes available to O’Leary, it’s municipal council wants it.

Council will apply, aware that it will be responsible for the cost of replacement flags if it is successful. Councillors discussed some possible locations for the pole and flag but is awaiting awarding of the hardware before discussing it in detail.
