Pluses: I absolutely love living by the water. It is very peaceful and serene here. You can truly relax and enjoy nature around you. To me, living here is like enjoying a bit of heaven.

Minuses: There are none. This is truly one of the best places on earth to live.

A great place to... raise a family and to have your own privacy as well as to be close to the water.

Other info: The nearest store is about 15 minutes away which isn't far at all. We are only about a half hour from the city of Charlottetown.

Pluses: I visited Mt. Albert today (August 28th, 2008) I took my daughter who is 23 months old and she loved your water splash pad behind the library! Then we went into the library and read a few books, and then visited your lovely main street and had a coffee at the Banana Cafe! What a lovely little town and everyone is nice and friendly and I loved the peacefulness, no noisy cars. I live in Newmarket and have been here all my life, but live in an area which is very busy now. I am looking forward to coming into Mt. Albert again for your fall fair on the 13th. Also if anyone here knows, I am trying to locate a lady who lives in Mt. Albert named "Marina". I met her about a year ago at the playpark here in the Newmarket, Upper Canada Mall! We both have daughters from China and I am hoping to meet up with her again for playdates for the kids! And anyone else who would be interested, who has adopted from China! I am in Newmarket, as I mentioned. Please think about this wonderful experience!

Minuses: my e-mail is: lj.white@rogers.com

Pluses: My Fiancee and I were taking the kids to the lookoff near Wolfville on our way to the Drive In and ran out of gas on the way back into town. A nice couple and thier daughter drove by and saw him walking with the gas container and picked him up, drove him to the gas station and back without accepting any money as thanks. We would like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts and let them know that it's nice to know there are still nice people in this province! Thanks again.

Pluses: There are good doctors in Oxbow.

Minuses: There is not much going on for you, if you have no job. And there are no jobs. People are not nice here and not to be trusted. When you need help, you will find out, how many cowards you live with. This place is exploited by religious sect, blackmailed and overtaxed by own township and no place to live. Everything is strange here, including the law, and the police. stay away.

Pluses: I lived in Donkin fom the ages of 3-13. I only really appreciated it's beauties once I'd left.
The advantages that I had growing up in Donkin was the ability to express my creativity.
When you grow up in these surroundings, you are forced to be creative to keep yourself entertained and sane. I had a great time growing up collecting rocks and snails from the shore and coming home soaking wet and getting yelled at for it. Or sledding down the hill behind the Old Co-Op just below the Mail Hill. Ha, and going to Gail's Store to get as much one cent candies as i could buy; looking for pennies outside on the ground so I could get just one more!
I am proud to say I grew up in small village in Cape Breton.
I can still smell the ocean or the fog early in the morning or wood burning at night when we'd have our bon-fires while our parents drank and we had long games of hide and seek.
Growing up in Donkin made me the cow girl-gone to the city girl-that I am today. I'm happy with that.

Minuses: Well with all of those wonderful things said, there are some bad things that has gone on in Donkin that everyone knows about but (as in most small towns) no one likes to talk about. Such as abuse; sexual, domestic, drug and alcohol.
See, going to the beach and collecting rocks is great when you're a kid but when you get older, it's much more fun to hang out with your budies and smoke a few joints and go through a couple packs of smokes and multiple cases of beer. We generally start these things at a younger age than most "city people" because we don't have amusement parks to go to or movie theaters. We don't even have a public transportation system.
Drug abuse is high and jobs are low. It's sad going back to this place that you have so many fond memories of and when you go back wiser, it's just an awful place to live; to be brutally honest.

A great place to... Donkin is a great place to vacation or retire. If you want to have a family there, I suggest you leave around the same time I did. It's great for children, not teenagers and sane, healthy adults with any form of intellegence because it will be wasted living in a place like Donkin.

Other info: I loved it as a kid and love it when I visit but don't live there.
Oh, and stay away from town after 9pm, thats when the junkies come out trying to sell you retlin and oxy's and really bad weed.

Pluses: Great boutiques - my favourite is Clemetine dans la compagne - they have gifts for everyone from table linens and bric a brac to bedding to hand made little girls dresses to shearling lined leather slippers.

Minuses: Most places to eat are a bit pricey except Spiro's and the pasta wasnt good and the pizza was OK - not good enough for a return visit.

A great place to... People watch, go to the public beach Douglass beach - good pubs and decent food in the pubs.
