Clara Hughes Says Goodbye New Brunswick, Hello PEI! - Two Stops in Prince Edward Island. by

Journal Notes

Clara Hughes and her Big Ride team say goodbye New Brunswick, and hello PEI! Here they will spend three days and make two stops on the smallest province of Canada, Prince Edward Island.

First in Summerside, PEI on April 11th, Clara Hughes will make two big stops in this city to start off her island tour. She will arrive with her team at around 4 p.m. to meet with hundreds of fans and give a couple of speeches at the Atlantic Superstore.

After this, she will dress up for yet another big dinner gala at the Summerside Legion, 340 Notre Dame, Summerside. The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

On the next day, the Big Ride Team will travel to the Capital of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown which is on the other side of the island. Here she will also play host to another dinner gala and her second auction of the Bell Let’s Talk Stigma Free Canada Tour.

I am very excited about Clara’s two visits in this province as I have visited both these cities two years ago on a scholar’s trip. I took a tour of the entire island and all of its beautiful locations. One of my favourite moments of the tour was seeing the confederation bridge and the Province House. The all time highlight of this trip though, for me, was visiting its government buildings and even getting the chance to briefly meet and speak with Robert Ghiz, the Prime Minister of Prince Edward Island. In addition, I was able to present some of my scientific research to members of the Prince Edward Island University and attend several lectures. UPEI is by far my favourite campus in Canada and I think it is a marvellous university all and all!
