A province that is not a province, but an agency of the federal government…”

This CBC television documentary hosted by Linden MacIntyre, shot in 1978 on Prince Edward Island, focuses on the “Development Plan” and especially the “Joint Advisory Board,” a 10-member federal-provincial committee that managed it and that, MacIntyre suggested, “works in secrecy” and was an affront to democracy. Regardless of how you view the issue, this is a fascinating at Prince Edward Island 35 years ago.

Note that the audio and video are out of sync for the first few minutes – until the introductory sequence – and then improve.
