A book by
Earle Lockerby ('62)
, Deporta-
tion of the Prince Edward Island Acadians, was
published by Nimbus in '08. A French trans-
lation of the book, Déportation des Acadiens
de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard, was released last
December. The removal of the Island's French
population to France in 1758 has been largely
overshadowed by the well-known deportation
of the Acadians of NS to the American colonies
three years earlier. While the number of resi-
dents deported from the Island was about half
the number expelled from NS, the incidence
of death due to disease, malnutrition, and
drowning was much greater. Of about 3,000
Acadians put aboard vessels at Port-la-Joye
(Charlottetown), half died en route to France.
The French edition is published by Les Éditions
au Carré of Montreal.

Jane (Waddell) Dunker ('67)
writes, "After
a 22-year career with Sears and then a 15-year
career with Investors Group, I decided to retire
in May '11. My husband Cameron and I have
been building our `dream' cottage/retirement
home on Georgian Bay near Honey Harbour for
the last five years. This will now become our
main residence and we'll enjoy the breathtak-
ing beauty of the area full time. We will continue
to rent in Mississauga, ON to keep in contact
with `the big city' -- Toronto and friends.
Sweet little Sackville

Music, interesting
people, conversation,
little shops with nice stuff,
good food, and a feeling
everything's going to be okay.
Bring us your boredom,
we'll trash it for free.
