Tourism looking up

(yeah, I know I’m a few days late with this one…)

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Honeymoon Capital is having a better tourism season this year than last, despite the continuing difficulties convincing Americans to take their holidays north of the border, says the president of Niagara Falls Tourism.

“We’re holding our own,” said Wayne Thomson.

“Fortunately, there are enough Ontarians, people from Quebec and other parts of Canada who are offsetting what would be a dismal year otherwise.”

Thomson said so far this year the majority of operators are reporting increased business compared to last summer when both Canada and the United States were smack dab in the middle of one of the worst recessions in decades.

“This last long weekend was exceptional,” said Thomson.
