P.E.I. Premier Robert Ghiz says he has no intention of lifting the shutters on Island stores on Sundays from January through May.

The Island stands out as the only province in the country without year-round Sunday shopping. The province forces stores to close on Sundays immediately after Christmas and stay closed until the Victoria Day weekend.

During question period Tuesday, Opposition critic Mike Currie called on the premier to introduce legislation to throw the doors wide open on Sunday shopping.

But Ghiz refused.
