"Bring Prince Edward Island back to the land" opinion piece

An opinion piece of mine appears in today's edition of the Charlottetown-based Guardian newspaper. In it I address Prince Edward Island's ever-growing concern of rural depopulation and suggest one possible solution. My idea is based upon my research on the 1970s back-to-the-land movement on the Island. You can read it by clicking here.

the Amchitka concert

The story of Greenpeace's maiden voyage to Amchitka has been told many times. What a lot of people don't realize is that it was funded, in part, by a concert featuring Phil Ochs, Joni Mitchell, and James Taylor. That concert, held 16 October 1970, is now available from Greenpeace here.

For more information about the concert, check out the blog of Greenpeace co-founder Rex Weyler, available here.
