Packed into this sign, posted at the head of a trail at Sally’s Beach in eastern PEI, is a potent set of only-in-Canada assumptions: that anyone will read such a wordy sign, that anyone has the vaguest notion of what 1.83 meters apart represents, that we require the paternalistic advice of the state to guide what are ultimately common sense decisions.
