The Peter Pan restaurant stood at the north end of Charlottetown from 1958 to 2012. It was such a landmark that the corner it sat on is still called by that name. The burger restaurant closed in 2013 and was torn down in 2020. The original wooden sign went to Holland College for restoration by heritage carpentry students. The fate of the illuminated sign was unknown until recently. Roger Wells, a Summerside real estate agent who collects vintage signs, came across the sign in a vintage picker sa

(Reuters) -U.S. authorities were blocked by a federal judge on Friday from lifting COVID-19 restrictions that empower agents at the U.S.-Mexico border to turn back migrants without giving them a chance to seek asylum. The nationwide injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays in Louisiana means the restrictions, which were set to end on May 23, will remain in place across the border as the litigation proceeds, unless a higher court overturns the ruling. The pandemic restrictions, known as Title 42, were put in place in March 2020 during the administration of former Republican President Donald Trump, an immigration hardliner.

It marked the first time delegates have not endorsed a candidate for governor. Many activists, and one of Kleefisch's rivals, had argued for not endorsing anyone, saying it would fracture the party.
