POLICE ASSOCIATION OF NOVA SCOTIA 21 PANS in the community Originally Appreared in PEI Guardian To: Chief A. Paul Smith. I am writing to express my sincere appreciation to the Charlottetown Police Force and in particular to Const. Michael McGee. In August of this year, a friend and myself had the opportunity to visit P.E.I. We had a wonderful experience taking in the beautiful sights as well as meeting some of the most hospitable and friendly people, with the exception of one. I had booked a room weeks in advance of my trip. When we arrived we were so sorry to find the room that was offered was not the room in the advertisement on Trip Advisor. It was clearly a “bait and switch” situation. After seeing the room that was offered, we decided not to stay. After speaking to the owner we were told that there would be no problem in refunding my money for two night stay. I am sorry to say that not only was my money not refunded but also I was actually charged for an additional two nights stay, bringing my total bill to $500. After calling and writing to the owner several times and getting nowhere, I phoned the Chamber of Commerce. They suggested that I phone the police department. I had the good fortune of speaking to Const. McGee who visited the owner several times on my behalf. Finally, after several months of trying to convince the owner to credit my charge he was met with success. As of Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014, my MasterCard was finally credited with half the amount, $257. In this day and age when there seems to be so much adversity toward law enforcement agencies, the city police department and Const. McGee went over and above the call of duty to assist me. He kept in touch with me to let me know what was happening until he was finally met with success. I know this is a small act of kindness but sometimes the small acts are what count.
