Where Prince Edward Island Meets The World








Ch. 1: Things that go bang in the morning

(12-minute read) - Scribs’s morning routine is disrupted by his older brother’s antics. We are introduced to his siblings, mother and a rather mysterious stranger. But it’s Evie, the MacSwain family’s artificial intelligence, who says the most.



Chatham House Rules

A good journalist is a good storyteller, yet only a fraction of their stories get told. The juicy bits are filtered out. Lecturers at City are some of the many gatekeepers to behind-the-scenes details in events like Princess Diana’s funeral, and humanitarian crises like in Yemen.



Engaging Steve Bannon

“We failed to sit at the kitchen tables in the Midwest in the 2016 election,” said Deborah Turness, President of CBS News International, putting her finger on the problem. For lack of a better analogy, Sarah Smith and the BBC had brought the cavalry to a tank fight. Smith’s methods were tried and proved against politicians in some of the hardest terrains, but not against a populist leader like Bannon.

The Aim

I would like to have 145,000 editors: Each Islander free to pitch story ideas for me to put together;

Be considered by Islanders as “our man in Europe”;

Be a direct link between the U.K. and P.E.I.—funnelling back the leading thoughts and initiatives in business, academia, politics, culture, security, fashion, environmental policies, economics, what have you.




2. A newspaper or magazine article or a broadcast programme devoted to the treatment of a particular topic, typically at length.

“A special feature on P.E.I.’s food industry”

3. A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
"That, in my opinion, is right"

PEI 2050


4. A dramatic story surrounding what Prince Edward Island might look like in the year 2050. Foul play in suspected when a dead body is found in a ditch near Breadalbane. Soon after, advanced technological networks that keep the Island running become compromised. Young journalist, Jerron “Scribs” MacSwain, becomes integral in the mission to uncover the secrets of “the Abbey” located in the community of Emerald. Throughout this series, various scenes of day-to-day-living on PEI are shown in the not-too-distant future.
