“I encourage all Canadians to get behind the TCT. Here in PEI, it’s the premier outdoor venue for walking, running, hiking and cycling. The Confederation Trail showcases the Island’s natural beauty...travel between communities, and gives people a great reason to enjoy the outdoors.” -The Honourable Robert Ghiz, Premier, PEI
"Almost every day, I run or walk on the TCT near where I grew up...or to get to my office or...to get groceries...Supporting the TCT is a way for me to give back...celebrate Canada's 150th birthday...promote green activities and healthy living. That’s good for all of us." - Robert A. Quartermain, President and CEO, Director, Pretivm
"I travel the country non-stop, and...nothing beats getting out and about on foot. It’s how you get to know a place...The TCT is classic, old-fashioned nation-building,something that should never go out of style. Let’s finish the trail so future generations can say. “wow, how did they do that?” -Rick Mercer, Star of CBC’s Rick Mercer Report
