Protest History - Dr. Ed MacDonald

DrEdMacDonaldKarenMair.jpgThe fight against the realignment of the TransCanada Highway at Bonshaw moved up a notch today. The Islanders at the site have been joined by some members of the Warrior Society from Cape Breton. The notion of Islanders rising up against development and staking their claims to land isn't new.

He's an associate professor of history at UPEI.
