This CBC story from PEI features the role of cricket (and good cricketing infrastructure) in attracting immigrants to Canada.
” was the promise of work that attracted Kense Philip to P.E.I.— but it was his love for the game of cricket that convinced him to stay.
“I love playing cricket. I’ve played cricket all my life, so that was the main reason,” said Philip, adding that he finds the cricket field in Tea Hill, P.E.I., “the best cricketing facility in the whole Atlantic Canada.”
The offer of a job in a community care/nursing home and the attractiveness of the lifestyle P.E.I. promised, came together to make the move to the Island an easy choice back in 2011, he said.”
