Standing Order – Recognizing Wayne Dickeson

Posted on March 25, 2015


Mr. Speaker, I rise to recognize Wayne Dickieson for his induction into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame.

A resident of North Rustico, P.E.l., Wayne graduated from Macdonald College in 1964 and worked with the P.E.I. department of agriculture in several capacities but, key, as a dairy specialist until his retirement in 2001.

Beyond professional work, he served as registrar-treasurer of the P.E.I.
Institute of Agrologists, on the board of Eastern Breeders and EastGen, as secretary-treasurer of the P.E.I. branch of Holstein Canada, and more.

Wayne dedicated himself to the care and showmanship of livestock for well over 40 years, standing as an official judge with Holstein Canada, where he has presided over shows in five provinces, the U.K., Isle of Man, and Colombia, as well as extensive work with Semex Canada in Iran.

He and his wife Flora and son David operate Birkentree Holsteins, which received a Master Breeder award from Holstein Canada in 2006.

We thank Wayne for his life’s work in the agricultural community and beyond.


Statement – P.E.I. Power Cable Funding Announced

Posted on March 20, 2015

HUNTER RIVER – Wayne Easter, MP for Malpeque, welcomes today’s federal government announcement of $50 million dedicated to placing two new electrical cables to Prince Edward Island running under the Northumberland Strait.

“Today’s announcement is an admission that the decision by the Harper Government to cancel the fully funded federal commitment to a transmission cable in 2005 was a mistake. The original commitment was $77 million dollar funding budgeted for by the previous government. With the costs of this project now at $150 million, this covers only one third of the needed funding.”

The original funding committed by the federal Liberal government of Paul Martin fully funded this initiative. The Conservatives canceled the signed agreement when they came to power in 2006.
