    As we find ourselves in this precarious era of global travel and tourism, there is a sense that U.S. summer vacationers are staying just a bit closer to home in 2016. Canada has proven appealing for those who seek a travel experience while still remaining near. Thanks to the f traveling back and forth between Canada and America, many Americans are finding their neighboring country a desirable destination, perhaps more so today than in previous years.

    NPC conducted ‘inappropriate, unacceptable’ actions: Auditors

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Two provincial audits into the Niagara Parks Commission concluded “some of the actions taken by former staff were inappropriate and unacceptable.”

    The audits, conducted during the past several months by the Ministry of Finance and publicly released Friday, look into past executive expenses, procurement practices and revenue generating opportunities at the parks commission.

    The provincial agency has had to deal with revelations of extravagant spending by a former executive, as well as questions about how it awards contracts to buy goods, services and other practices.

    “We conclude that for the expense areas reviewed, in a significant number of instances, the NPC was not in compliance with the (Management Board of Cabinet) travel, meal and hospitality expenses directive,” states one of the audit reports.

    The Niagara Falls Review also has the entire report available for you to read.

    From Buffalo Business First:

    Just a few days before the grand opening of the Scotiabank Convention Centre, Kerry Painter is able to finally get rid of her hard hat and steel-toed shoes as she walks around the building.

    The 288,000-square-foot Niagara Falls, Ont. convention center is that close to opening.

    Crews inside and outside the Stanley Avenue facility are spending the final days before the center’s official debut Friday afternoon focusing less on bricks-and-mortar issues and more on putting the final touches on the $100 million building that many believe will be a critical piece of Niagara Falls’ tourism and hospitality business.
