Over lunch today I was reminded of the day I parked in the Premier’s parking spot by mistake.
About eight years ago, I was delivering some computers to the Legislative Assembly, and I pulled right up to back driveway to unload. I was inside for no more than half an hour, and when I came out there was a carefully written note under my windshield wiper:
You are Parked in the Premiers Parking Spot
It was signed simply “Commissionaire.”
That was it.
That note, in its own small way, was responsible for keeping us on Prince Edward Island. I saved the note, and it’s sitting beside me at the computer as I write this.
