Council must mind its own glass house

From the Niagara Falls Review:

They’ve got a lot of nerve on city council to criticize the Niagara Parks Commission over the appearance of Queen Victoria Park, when the city pumps raw sewage into the Niagara River.

City councillors like to dole out the free advice, but they’re in a big glass house when it comes to telling any other government agency how to run things better.

At Monday’s meeting, council is giving a soapbox to Preserve Our Parks, a watchdog group that keeps tabs on the parks commission…

It probably wouldn’t take much effort to drive around Niagara Falls and see a bunch of similar damage at city-owned buildings, pothole-covered roads or long grass at parks.

Border requirements impact local tourism

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Canadian tourism industry is experiencing its longest period of decline since the 9-11 terrorist attacks almost eight years ago, according to Statistics Canada report released Monday.

But if the recent experience of the Niagara Parks Commission is a good indication of what’s happening elsewhere in Niagara, Ontario and across Canada today, the Statistics Canada figures showing a 1.3 per cent decrease in tourism spending during the first quarter of 2009 will be seen as comparatively good news.

Parks commission chairman Jim Williams says the NPC has seen its revenues fall sharply since the beginning of June when new border-crossing regulations came into effect.

“We were actually having a fairly good turnaround from Nov. 1 until May 31,” said Williams. “Overall, our numbers were up eight per cent or thereabouts, year over year.

“But since the beginning of June, there has been a dramatic decline … We’ve experienced anywhere from 15 to 20 per cent decline in all of our various revenue generating operations just since June 1.”
