    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It could be summer before the Niagara Parks Commission gets a new manager at the helm as the government agency begins the process to fill the shoes of its retired boss John Kernahan.

    “I’m going to suggest the search process is going to take three or four months,” chairwoman Fay Booker said in an interview. “It can be into June before we have our person on site. That would be a guess of mine.”

    I’ve said this a couple of times this summer, but I didn’t have any hard numbers to back me up…

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The latest figures from Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism show a modest increase in American visitation to Ontario during June compared to a year earlier when stricter border-crossing regulations came into full effect.

    Crossings from the United States to Ontario were up 7.8% in June. Sameday crossings increased 15.2% while overnight crossings were up 2.7% over the same month the year previous.

    Wayne Thomson, president of Niagara Falls Tourism, was caught off guard by the figures showing increases in June.

    “That’s extremely surprising,” said Thomson, a city councillor and former mayor of Niagara Falls. “That’s completely contrary to the feedback and the statistical information I have received from the major stakeholders.

    “There seemed to be satisfaction with January to May, and then a substantial dropoff in June, but July, August and September coming back.”
