Time for province to tackle DMF mess in Falls

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Last spring, my cohort Ray Spiteri and I did a three-part series on the Destination Marketing Fee, the notorious tourism fee several Niagara Falls hotels and restaurants have been charging since 2004.

    In recent years, the fee – up to 10 per cent in some places – has angered countless tourists. And with good reason: There still isn’t accountability for it. Businesses collect the money, but do not remit it to a proper tourism agency or association. We are supposed to take their word for it that it goes toward tourism-related projects.

    You can see why this is a problem. And why it hurts the industry as a whole.
