Ascension, Prince Edward Island

Ascension (also known as Pigbrook) is a small community located mainly on Route 160 from 3 miles NE of Tignish. Ascension is within the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, in Eastern Canada.

The community is home to Harper's Brook, a tributary to the Tignish River, which runs from Tignish to DeBlois. It is home to approximately 130 people.

The name "Ascension" is believed to have come from the Christian doctrine account of the Ascension of Jesus after his death. The name may also be derived from the fact that the Ascension road ascends, from its starting point at Tignish to its finish in Nail Pond.

Famous quotes containing the words island, edward and/or prince:

    In all things I would have the island of a man inviolate. Let us sit apart as the gods, talking from peak to peak all round Olympus. No degree of affection need invade this religion.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Some have too much, yet still do crave;
    I little have, and seek no more.
    They are but poor, though much they have,
    And I am rich with little store.
    They poor, I rich; they beg, I give;
    They lack, I leave; they pine, I live.
    —Sir Edward Dyer (c. 1540–1607)

    A chaplain is the minister of the Prince of Peace serving the host of the God of War—Mars. As such, he is as incongruous as a musket would be on the altar at Christmas. Why, then, is he there? Because he indirectly subserves the purpose attested by the cannon; because too he lends the sanction of the religion of the meek to that which practically is the abrogation of everything but brute Force.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
