CHARLOTTETOWN - Prince Edward Island’s Opposition leader says a rise in COVID-19 cases has revealed the inappropriateness of a public scolding dished out by the premier over criticisms of the government’s back-to-school pandemic policies. Green Party Leader Peter Bevan-Baker put out a YouTube video on Friday recalling that Tory Premier Dennis King had said critics “pissed him off” when they called for the province to keep mandatory masking requirements for schools.
CHARLOTTETOWN - A growing COVID-19 outbreak at a Charlottetown elementary school has led to the closure of another school. Health officials Thursday evening reported two new infections connected to an outbreak at West Royalty Elementary School, which has been closed this week. A few hours earlier, they had reported eight new cases on the Island, seven of which were tied to that school.
