Eastern Graphic


Also available

This short film takes a look at Prince Edward Island through the eyes of Jim McNeil, editor and publisher of the Eastern Graphic, the Island's only weekly. Filmed during the 1974 provincial election, the film places particular emphasis on grass-roots politicking and the newspaper's role in reporting on it.

    This is a real gem, apart from the fact that Canadian Tire have moved to the Mall, nothing much has changed. It's one of the reasons why I love The Island so much.
