PARK CORNER - OYSTER BED (18)

 

Candidates:

PC: Beth MacKenzie
Liberal: Jean Tingley
NDP: Ken Bingham

Current MLA: Beth MacKenzie (PC)

Riding Profile: This is Anne’s Land, the driving engine of tourism on Prince Edward Island, including Cavendish, Stanley Bridge, New Glasgow, Rustico, and the heart of the National Park.

But it is not all about tourists. Part of the charm of the riding is the highly productive farms that are located here. Rustico is a major fishing port, bringing in lobster and this year becoming a centre for tuna as well.
