2010 Levee Reviews

  • Lieutenant Governor: Lovely music. His honour reads my blog.
  • City of Charlottetown: Where did the sandwiches go? Met Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen.
  • HMCS Queen Charlottetown: Busiest levee of the day. Very tasty chowder. Odd fantasy life where they pretend it’s actually a boat (“welcome aboard!”).
  • Haviland Club: Top-flight sweets. Most grounded crowd of the day.
  • Queen Charlotte Armories: Once again the band was fantastic. And the museum interesting.
  • Diocese of Charlottetown: The full buffet of yore replaced with tiny slices of fruitcake, and the crowd crammed into the hallway. Bishop was friendly, though.
  • Hon. Robert Ghiz: No sandwiches here either, but still the best food of the day. Premier was in top form.

UPEI had sandwiches, it was worth the drive. Easily the best food. Charlottetown firehall was hopping.

The Premier’s Levee was, for me, the best of the day. Totally agree that the Premier was in top form — he took time speak to everyone and made a point of calling each by their name. Not sure about the MLA’s being rotated in the line-up. Several of them didn’t hide the fact that they didn’t want to be there and it tended to slow down the line-up.
However, the ladies writing the name cards and the ladies reading the names to the Premier did a great job and kept things moving. And…there was lots of food even at 4:45 when I arrived.
