Keep Right

We’re on our way home from Cape Breton, via the ferry, our band of merry travellers.

The Chief Public Health Office has done something really smart: in place of the tourist information kiosk on the ferry, they’re running “PEI Pass” pre-checks, where they review your paperwork and, if it all checks out, and you don’t need testing, you get a golden (pink) ticket that allows bypass of the lineup on the other side.

Nancy, our cordial shipboard CPHO staffer, was very patient with our various complexities (she didn’t bat an eye when Olivia explained that she’s a trans woman and thus her PEI Pass name doesn’t match her ID), and a ticket we did indeed receive. So at Wood Islands we’ll “keep right,” hand it over, and glide right through.
