remax pei: P.E.I. out to restore the reputation of the maligned Malpeque oyster - 12/08/08 10:26 PM
The provincial government has set December as "Celebration of the Oyster" month, in the wake of media reports calling into question the quality of Malpeque oysters, once considered among the world's best.
Last week, the province called together local media to showcase Malpeque oysters - complete with photo ops of Premier Robert Ghiz slurping them off the half shell.
While the Malpeque name still carries weight, the oyster's reputation took a hit recently when some prominent names in the oyster industry singled them out for criticism. Seventy per cent of the Malpeque oyster fishery is wild, and that causes some problems … (1 comments)

remax pei: Housing starts fall 21% as condo construction slows: CMHC - 12/08/08 10:23 PM
November housing starts fell to 172,000 units, representing a 21.6 per cent decline in year-over-year comparisons, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said Monday.
The federal agency attributed the decline in part to slumping demand in the condo market.
"Note that at the beginning of the new millennium, Canada posted strong housing start levels given a pent-up demand that existed then," said Bob Dugan.
"Over the last few years, this excess demand gradually decreased and our forecast for 2008 and 2009 reflects this new reality with housing starts, more aligned with long run demographic demand."
