From the Niagara Falls Review:
Will a new hotel tax the province has granted municipalities power to impose replace the notorious Destination Marketing Fee in Niagara Falls?
There were lots of guesses after Thursday’s provincial budget, but not much clarification. Even Mayor Jim Diodati is unsure just what the new tax is, and what it means for the city.
“I’ve got a lot of questions I need answers to, but if it’s done right this could be a good thing,” said Diodati Friday. “I’m guessing that the province’s idea is not to add a tax, but to create an environment that’s more accountable, more transparent, more consistent.
“But at this point, we’re still in the dark on it.”
