Seventeen years ago I was also in New England, also at the tail end of a work trip. My office network connection, back on PEI, went down. Which was a problem, as it connected websites to the Internet. So I called Aliant, and a helpful person named Heather solved the problem for me.
The Island being the Island, I learned last week that this Heather is the same Heather that I now sit on the Mayor’s Task Force on Active Transportation with.
