CBC To Profile PEI Harness Racing

Published: January 31, 2012 03:11 pm EST

On Sunday, February 5, the CBC will be shining its light on the Prince Edward Island harness racing industry during the airing of the latest installment of 'Land and Sea.'

Land and Sea, which has been aired since the mid-1960s, brings viewers stories from people who live off the local land and the sea. The CBC website explains that the show covers issues which affect people in rural communities that ultimately affect those in cities as well.

According to the write-up for Sunday's episode, the show will be focusing on the challenges the PEI racing industry is facing heading forward.

For over 150 years, Harness Racing has been a significant social and economic tradition on Prince Edward Island. Now with a global economic crisis and so many new ways for people to spend their money - it's a gamble if the industry can survive.
