The Twin City Bubble

As near as I can tell, Charlottetown is twinned with three other places: Shediac, NB, Forest City, NC and Ashibetsu, Japan.

With the revivified Atlantic Bubble set to be announced today, I thought I might sneak in and suggest an alternative: let’s everyone bubble with their twins.

I mean, Shediac, what were they thinking?!

But I for one would welcome the chance to jet across the Pacific to see the Hokkaido Kannon and the ruins of the fake Green Gables.

And Forest City: it’s a city in a forest. Imagine spending late April hanging out with the Na’vi, catapulting out for coffee every morning on the zip line, enjoying the warm, mud-free spring.

Sounds better than the Irving in Truro, am I right?

I may be too late to sway Atlantic Premiers on this issue, but perhaps, regardless, it’s time to reconsider our twins? Paris anyone?

I'm in favor of twinning Burlington, Vermont, with Charlottetown. Where do I lobby?
