The municipality of Linkletter is honouring the memory of an active member of their community, Greg Waite.

The road connecting Route 11 with Linkletter Beach Road is being renamed Greg Waite Road. Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy Minister Biggar joined residents at the ceremony this morning to make Greg Waite Road part of the provincial road network.

“Renaming the road after Greg is a fitting memorial to someone who dedicated so much of his time to the community,” Minister Biggar said. “He is truly a model of Islanders’ hardworking and community-minded spirit.”

Waite passed away November 28, 2015. He was a Linkletter community council member for more than 25 years and was instrumental in the development of the Linkletter Community Center.

“Greg would be humbled and smiling from ear to ear at the same time,” said Barry Waite of Summerside. “It is so nice to see the community doing this in his honour.”
