Program Will Cover Confederation Bridge Tolls for Needy Islanders with Medical Appointments

CBC News Prince Edward Island reports that low-income island residents travelling out of the province for medical reasons will soon be able to apply to a charitable program to cover the cost (CDN $46 for passenger cars) of the Confederation Bridge toll. “The program is being provided by Hope Air — a national charity that provides free flights to low income people who have to travel for medical reasons — in collaboration with Health PEI.”
