CHARLOTTETOWN – From June 2nd – June 4th, Quebec singer-songwriter and actor Kevin Parent and the production team for La Petite Séduction are touring Charlottetown and Rustico as part of one episode of the popular TV series.
The series has been broadcast on ICI Radio-Canada since 2005 and attracts more than 1 million viewers each week.
