What Makes People on P.E.I. Unique

This week on Island Morning, we're sharing stories about what makes people who live on P.E.I. unique.  You will notice that we chose our words carefully...not just "Islanders"....but also people who CHOOSE to live on Prince Edward Island.  But that's a story for another day.

This morning, we have a piece for you that first aired on Islander Day last February. It's about an elderly man stranded in his car - in a snow storm... and NO one stops to help. No one, that is, until an Island girl far from home happens by... Beth Johnston was living in Ottawa, when she came upon this heartbreaking scene.

She later wrote about it for her newspaper the Ottawa Sun.
